The 2014/15 timetable is composed of a potential 40 lessons each week (8 per day); every lesson being 45 minutes long. There are two, thirty minute breaks in the day.


Key Stage 4


Students follow a standardised curriculum at Key Stage 3. At the end of Year 9 they are required to select subjects that they wish to study further at I/GCSE Level.


Following input by departments and a meeting with the Assistant Headteacher for students and parents, students will be required to submit their selections via an official form.


In Key Stage 4, students at MIS study two compulsory subjects; English and Mathematics, and at least one Science subject. They then choose a further 4 subjects.



Key Stage 5


At MIS we aim to personalise the KS5 timetable for every student in line with academic ability. At Key Stage 5 subjects studied will be selected by the students based on personal choice and aptitude indicated by results at GCSE for students in Year 12 and, AS for students in Year 13. We also offer a GCSE enhancement program for those students who require more subject passes to progress to AS Level studies.


The 2014/15 timetable gives each option six 45 minute lessons per week with twelve lessons over two weeks. The amount of subjects allowed for a student is dependent upon their success at IGCSE level.


Course details are issued each year in the spring term for courses that will start in the following September.
