• Year 11 (15-16 year olds): a preparation course for entry into an A Level or IB school in Years 12 and 13; some IGCSEs will be delivered depending upon ability and level of English
All courses lead to their own Graduation Certificate

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