Secondary classes at Cambridge House Valencia
At Cambridge House British International School, secondary education consists of Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, culminating in the IGCSE examinations and the automatic recognition of the Spanish diploma of Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO).
During the first three years, corresponding to Key Stage 3 (from 11 to 14 years of age), our pupils deepen and reinforce their knowledge in the compulsory subjects of Mathematics, English and Science, which they complement with optional subjects of the English National Curriculum, while also taking the core subjects of the Spanish education system.
In Key Stage 4 (from 14 to 16 years of age), our students will be assessed in a final examination, an external and state exam, known as the "International General Certificates of Secondary Education", academic certificates internationally recognised for their rigour and excellence.
In addition to academic knowledge, at Cambridge House we equip our students with the critical, analytical and rational thinking skills necessary for them to become proactive and successful members of 21st century society. Communication and public speaking skills, as well as creativity and inventiveness continue to feature prominently in our secondary curriculum.
Distinctive elements of the Cambridge House Secondary curriculum:
Guidance and support
These years are a crucial time for our students as they select subjects for the IGCSE examinations and begin to plan for further academic study. At Cambridge House British International School we support and guide our students throughout their secondary education, helping them to define their interests so that they can begin to evaluate and analyse the many career paths they can follow.
We believe that responsibility and self-discipline are essential tools.
