The Arabic department teaches listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in the Arabic Language to native speakers to Key Stage 4 students. It is a core subject for native speakers and optional for non-native speakers.

Students studying Arabic can opt to study for GCSE or IGCSE from Year 10 and can, thereafter, go on to study for the AS and A2 examinations. The selected examination board is Edexcel and the Scheme of Work is created to deliver relevant modules and topics.


Students in Key Stage 4 are assessed in line with school policy and the assessments are outlined in the school calendar. Students are given continuous assessments on taught materials, together with termly assessments. These help determine the progress and current working grades for each student and enables the teacher to deliver teaching materials accordingly to meet student needs.

The Arabic department organises trips and school activities to help reinforce the curriculum as well as to develop social skills and environmental awareness. Visits have been organized to the Islamic Museum, the Ceramique Café and Souq Waqif. The department also hosts the Arabic Heritage Week during school hours. The Language Café is held annually and students also prepare and attend the Arabic Breakfast event.
