Ethos International School
Senior School – Key Stage 3
In Key Stage 3, added to the teaching and learning focus, we focus on developing the independence and individuality of the pupils where learning goes hand in hand with life skills that shape their lives now and in the future. Pupils get a taste of goes through real life experiences such as community service, actual jobs around campus and the ability to handle and entertain children of different ages and in different settings; therefore, pupils have a community service plan with many differentiated jobs to cater for the different abilities and talents they have.
In Key Stage 3 the emphasis is on continuing and extending the international British education experience pupils started in KS2 supplemented by the Cambridge programme to aid and prepare pupils in the journey leading to Pre IGCSE and the IGCSE. Pupils continue developing their life skills, while exhibiting cultural proficiency, diversity and maintaining social norms related to local culture and traditions.
Ethos International School
Senior School – Key Stage 4
Key Stage 4 covers years 10, 11, and 12. It marks an important time in a student’s education, as in many countries, it’s the last three years of compulsory school. KS4 at Ethos is based on the National Curriculum of England, where pupils are set to achieve the International General Certificate of Education (IGCSE) from England.
At Ethos, we help our pupils make academic choices and prepare for the exams that will give them access to top universities and other future goals.
In KS4, pupils have the opportunity to select the subjects they wish to continue studying as well as taking the compulsory subjects of English, Math, and Science. Students will have the chance to select some courses because they are interested in them, and they’ll start the process of taking responsibility for their own education which will continue up to the end of year 12 and then as they go on to university.
At Ethos IGCSE is offered through the Ministry approved Examination boards of:
- Cambridge Examination Board – CIE
- Edexcel Examination Board – Pearson
- Oxford Examination Board
- As a school, we select which board to go within every subject based on the grade boundaries to ensure pupils receive the best chances of getting the highest possible grade in each subject.
Pupils have a large pool of subject choices to select from, among which are:
- Travel and Tourism
- Computer Science
- Human Biology
- Art and Design
- Information & Communication Technology
In addition to the academic focus, at Ethos, pupils develop the life skills they will need to have as young adults joining the workforce or leading independent lives on their own through an intensive community service plan with many differentiated jobs to cater for the different abilities and talents they have. Pupils undertake jobs around the school assisting in the handling of children, helping in offices with admin work, supporting the sports coaching of pupils, as well as serving in the school cafeteria and workshop, each based on their area of interest or strength.
