College Graduation Certificate

The curriculum within any programme is an innovative but sensible mixture of traditional and modern, comprising both compulsory and elective subjects, but emphasising wider personal development as well as academic achievement.

Students will take externally assessed qualifications (usually IGCSEs) in English language, Mathematics, Science and Global Perspectives. Depending upon their programme of study, their ability and command of the language, they will have opportunity to choose some elective subjects from: Art, Economics, History, Further Maths, Mandarin, Music and Photography.

However, a key feature of the College curriculum will be its programme of enrichment and extension, known as The Enrichment Programme and the overall emphasis on Personal Development. The Enrichment Programme will include cross-curricular lessons in the humanities, critical thinking, theory of knowledge, business and coding.
