The Secondary Journey

THE SECONDARY 
JOURNEY

While the importance of academic education is emphasised our students are also encouraged to achieve their best in the areas of creative, social, physical, emotional, moral and spiritual development. 
 


 

YEARS 7, 8 & 9: KEY STAGE 3

During the first three years our students are provided with a challenging, vibrant and nurturing environment that enables each individual to flourish.

While the importance of academic education is emphasised our students are also encouraged to achieve their best in the areas of creative, social, physical, emotional, moral and spiritual development. We believe in promoting knowledge wherever it may occur, since this is the principle of a holistic education.

YEARS 10 & 11: KEY STAGE 4

Students in Years 10 and 11 study a two year course: the I/GCSE (International/General Certificate of Secondary Education) programme. The world’s most popular international certification for 14-16 year olds, the British programme culminates in a set of externally assessed examinations after two years of study at the end of Year 11.

These exams provide a solid foundation for the next stage of their education - the pre-university course of A Level Examinations.

We provide a safe and supportive environment for the children to excel in academic attainment and flourish as happy individuals.

YEAR 12 & 13: KEY STAGE 5

The Middle School is filled with opportunity, excitement and a passion to succeed. We strive to nurture and develop well-rounded, capable and caring individuals who have the skills, knowledge and attitudes to lead a rich and fulfilling life.

Our aim is to provide children in Years 3 and 4 with an excellent education in a caring and enriching environment. We believe that a passion for learning and willingness to succeed are key factors in your child’s success at school.

In addition to the core mainstream British Curriculum subjects, specialist lessons are delivered by subject teachers in Arabic, P.E. and Music. Muslim pupils also have Islamic Studies lessons. Regular field trips are organised to support and reinforce the curriculum, as well as widening the learning experiences we offer.

In line with our school Learner Profile, we encourage confidence, responsibility and resilience in all our students, and it is our aim to ensure that children may achieve their full potential.

I have so many fond memories of SES. It has given me lifelong friends and I was so lucky to be surrounded by some of the most supportive teachers.

Class of 2003

Through differentiated lessons, every student is allocated tasks and assignments appropriate to their level of development and students are monitored consistently to inform teachers of successful changes to their developmental levels. Children are encouraged to become more independent and take ownership of their actions, learning and behaviour.

Through a positive behaviour programme, we promote self-awareness and foster feelings of empathy and understanding among our students. Kindness and respect are essential elements of the atmosphere created in our classes.
