Secondary, a section comprising grades 5-11, is where students are prepared to be value-driven, caring, open-minded, positive, constructive and proactive young adults as well as global citizens who can face the challenges of the 21st century. Students are educated within the IB philosophy, also guided by the values of The English Way, to develop research, communication, self-management and social skills that will empower them to contribute ideas and solutions toward a better and peaceful world based on intercultural understanding. This is developed during the Middle Years Programme (Grades 5-9) and the IB Diploma Programme (Grades 10 and 11).
In this section, we strive to make learning meaningful, connecting the learning that takes place in the classroom to the real world so that students enjoy and see the relevance of what they are studying. It is crucial that our students maximise their academic and personal potential and that they have a safe learning environment to do so. Therefore, students’ emotional and physical well-being is of paramount importance to The English School, offering different programmes that have continuity between sections to guarantee this.
