Teaching and Learning

BSKL teaches over 1,000 students from Early Years through to Sixth Form following the National Curriculum which is organised into blocks of years called ‘Key Stages’ (KS).

The Foundation Stage starts in the Early Years (ages 2 to 5), where learning is play based. Children acquire their first notions of numeracy and literacy through active, playful activities. By the end of the Early Years, most children have acquired basic reading and number skills and a grounding of a second language.

In the Primary school, KS 1 (ages 5 to 7) and KS 2 (ages 7 to 11) focuses on learning good fundamental Maths and English language skills. Science, Technology, Humanities and Art are covered as multi-disciplinary topics and through projects. Within Primary school, students will sit national exams called SATS in Year 2, and GL assessments in Year 6.

The curriculum in KS 3 Lower Secondary (ages 11 to 14) is more subject based and aims at building students’ ability to work independently and think critically. At this stage the emphasis is on exposing opportunities to a wide range of subjects so that they can begin to form ideas of where their academic interests lie.

Upper Secondary students in KS 4 work towards their (I)GCSE examinations (ages 14 to 16) and A-Level exams. At (I)GCSE, students study English, Maths, Science and a second language plus an additional four or five subjects from a selection. At A Level students specialise further and choose three or four subjects from a range of options. 

Students achieve excellent exam results, out-performing many of their UK counterparts. In the last academic year 82% of students achieved A/A and 94% A/B grades in all of their (I)GCSE examinations. These academic achievements are also matched by the younger students in the SATS (Standardised Assessment Tests), with BSKL far outperforming the UK national average.

Facilities

BSKL has three striking state-of-the-art campuses. Facilities include three indoor sport halls, two swimming pools and two full size football fields. The music and performing arts programmes have a 650-seat theatre and over 20 specialist music and dance rooms, whilst three unique libraries cater for everyone with over 20,000 books. The latest technology and creative breakout spaces features strongly throughout the school.
