Secondary Curriculum

Star International School Al Twar follows the British National Curriculum throughout the school and offers Year 9-11.

In Key Stage 3, we build upon the skills acquired in Key Stage 2. Key Stage 3 is completed at the end of Year 8, after which students transfer to Key Stage 4 (Year 9), where they begin their 3 year GCSE. The work covered in Key Stage 3 prepares students for the move to GCSE, it is, therefore, vital that they complete the full Key Stage in order to have the best foundations for GCSE in Year 10.
