 Key Stage 5

Key Stage 5 Curriculum – General Statement

The Key Stage 5 age range, 16-18 years, involves external academic assessment and formal academic study which leads to examination at GCE Level and I/GCSE Level. Year 12 usually leads to AS (Advanced Subsidiary) Level qualifications and allows entry to the A2 level courses offered in Year 13. These are internationally recognised qualifications and are the next step towards further advanced academic studies. Key Stage 5 is a challenge for many pupils and requires increased development of their personal organisational and study skills.

The Role of the School at KS5 is:

  • To develop skills and knowledge for lifelong learning
  • To develop knowledge in a range of subjects and studies
  • To create independent, self-disciplined and self-aware students
  • To provide for success at I/GCSE Level and GCE AS and A2 Level
  • To prepare students for advanced level studies and tertiary education

At MIS we believe that every child should be able to reach their full academic potential through high quality teaching, a disciplined and positive learning environment, and a strong system of Academic and Pastoral Support.        Individual Learning Need

Our aim is to ensure that our students are given the opportunity to achieve academically to the best of their ability.
