Grade 7 is the first year of High School and the students undertake a 2-year Foundation International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) that is based on the British National Curriculum.

Being exposed to a range of subjects enables students to make informed choices about their IGCSE options and ultimately what they will study in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.
