Curriculum >> Key Stage 4
Key Stage 4 comprises Years 10
and 11. It is a crucial stage in the students’ development from children to
young adults, both in terms of their academic education, and their personal
growth as individuals with varied talents and characters.
Key Stage 4 culminates in the
examinations for the International General Certificates of Education (IGCSEs).
These qualifications are a vital stepping stone towards further education and
future careers. In the past, the IGCSEs marked the end of education at Dukhan
English School, but the school now offers Sixth Form education. Key Stage 4
forms a bridge to Sixth Form education at Dukhan English School, enabling the
students to maintain a continuous educational programme throughout their school
lives. This is part of our ongoing effort to improve the range of educational
choices available to our students, so that we can offer a first-rate
international education to the community.
After the examinations, Key
Stage 4 students take part in a work experience programme with Qatar Petroleum.
This helps to prepare students for the extra responsibilities of the Sixth Form
and the world of work.
Key Stage 4 is a time when
students prepare to take on the responsibilities of adulthood. In order to face the challenges ahead
successfully, they must develop qualities of self-reliance, integrity,
maturity, and self-motivation. As young adults, students in Key Stage 4 are
keen to establish their unique identities. At these ages extra-curricular
activities such as the Oryx Award are especially important, as they provide an
excellent way to help students discover their strengths, overcome their
weaknesses and self-doubts, and learn how to interact with their peers and
adults. It is vital that Years 10 and 11 are not simply seen as a time of
academic study, but for students to engage actively and positively with life
and the wider world.Downloads:
