KS4 is the 2nd cycle of Secondary Education and provides two years of preparation (Y10 and Y11) which culminate in the taking of the International General Certificates of Secondary Education (IGCSE).
We understand that students have different rates of learning and also different talents and abilities, so we offer different academic options from KS4. These options are chosen individually with guidance from parents and teachers.
All students follow the Cambridge IGCSE core and foundation curriculum (English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Science and Spanish). In addition, students choose 4 optional IGCSE subjects from the following: Geography, History, Business Studies, French, German, Art, Music, ICT and Physical Education.
Escola Global offers both the Spanish and English education systems. This allows non-Spanish students to choose between following both systems or to choose only the English system.
The students following the Spanish curriculum will add Catalan and sociales into their subjects. The students choosing only the English system will add one more IGCSE course to their education.
In addition, they could also achieve the Cambridge ICE group award, which is similar to a High School Diploma
