KICS Senior Section
The Senior Section at KICS constitutes Years 7-13 (ages 11-18), or US Grades 6-12.
We are committed to an inquiry-based learning approach that meets the specific needs of individual students. We fully believe that students learn best when they are happy, enjoy their learning and feel respected as individuals. We encourage students to take an active part in their own learning process, to set goals, to be independent learners and to evaluate their own progress.
The curriculum in Seniors is focused on preparation for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13. Students in Years 7-11 undertake an inquiry-based programme that culminates in examinations for International General Certificates in Secondary Education (IGCSEs).
We value the development of the student as a whole. In addition to their regular classes, students undertake various projects, such as a Personal Project and a Technology Passport in Year 10, as well as having the opportunity to partake of numerous extra-curricular activities, clubs and societies, as well as participate in sports competitions and artistic pursuits such as drama productions and music concerts. All students take part in an Outdoor Education Programme, culminating in a Leadership expedition to Thailand in Year 12.
We have a commitment to pastoral care through our Homeroom system and each student receives individual attention to ensure his/her wellbeing. We aim for students to feel valued, inspired and motivated to achieve their full potential.
I hope this website provides you with a taste of the energy and excitement at our school. If you would like to find out more, please do not hesitate to get in touch or visit the school.
