Welcome to the Seniors
Students face exciting personal and academic challenges as they commence their Senior studies at Aspire Private British School. Our aim is to create a love of learning and develop a spirit of inquisitiveness that will lead students to academic growth whilst also developing their character.
The final years of the Seniors leads to IGCSE examinations and external qualifications for which Aspire Private British School has an excellent reputation of achievement.
KEY STAGE 3
In Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9) students are introduced to further curriculum subjects and are taught by subject specialists in each area.
A strong pastoral support system remains in place for students with their form tutor ensuring continuity and consistency throughout their studies.
Students are given plenty of opportunities to display their talents and interests in a variety of ways both inside and outside the classroom. They are also given increasing responsibility for their own learning through investigative projects and challenging assignments.
Key Stage 3 is completed with teachers offering career guidance and support for students in Year 9 as they choose which option subjects they would like to continue with in Key Stage 4 to IGCSE level – again ensuring the transition is smooth and choices are well-informed.
KEY STAGE 4
In Years 10 and 11 students work towards important external qualifications – GCSEs and IGCSEs. Mathematics, English and at least one of the Sciences are compulsory subjects and the students also choose other subject options providing them with a wide range of external qualifications at the end of their Year 11 Senior studies.
A wider variety of subject choices are available with purpose built facilities catering for a range of interests. Students can follow an academic path whilst also adding more creative and practical subjects to their choices.
