The HHIS Secondary Phase provides an enthusiastic and energetic environment for all our individual learners to achieve their very best. Students are fully guided by highly qualified and experienced UK teachers and receive regular feedback on their progress. This is through a combination of practical work, presentations, class work, home learning, practice tests and projects.
Key Stage 3 integrates elements of both Primary and Secondary for our students in Years 7, 8 and 9. Academic subjects begin to evolve into the “separate subject model” of high school, where each subject becomes its own discipline taught by a specialist teacher. However, subjects do not become completely separated in this key stage. Rather, the students’ learning centres around themes that tie subjects together and inspire our learners to draw their own meaning from the experiences they enjoy.
We understand that our learners will develop and begin to change during Key Stage 3 and throughout the Secondary School. Some of these changes may seem unrelated to their education, but our teachers know how to respond and are skilled in providing individual support. This ensures our students enjoy and achieve in their learning and have the tools to flourish in an academically rigorous curriculum.
Key Stage 4, continues to offer students the chance to study a broad curriculum with a wide range of IGCSE subject choices available. During Year 9, we talk to every individual student and their families, so we can fully understand their interests and future aspirations. By offering the subjects that students want to study, they will continue to enjoy and achieve in their learning. Students embark on their IGCSE journey at the start of year 10. All subjects studied during Year 10 and 11 are Cambridge IGCSE qualifications. Cambridge IGCSEs are recognised by universities and employers around the world. The subjects available include;
The Sixth Form opens in 2020 – our school continues to grow and we are very excited about the next big step in our development. In August 2020, our first students will begin Sixth Form studies. Students will be able to individually design their studies from a wide range of subjects. The Sixth Form will continue to offer an exciting, holistic and inclusive education, providing our students with the perfection preparation for university, employment and life.
