Year 7 to Year 9 (from 11 to 14 years old )
In National Curriculum Years 7 to 9 specialist teachers deliver a balanced programme broadly based on the English National Curriculum, but with additional factors such as the introduction of the three separate sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) in Year 9 and the availability of three modern languages (French, Spanish and German).
All students validate their studies by following courses in Spanish Language, Literature and Social Sciences, according to the curriculum set by the Spanish Ministry of Education. Students with little knowledge of Spanish study Spanish as a foreign language.
As in England, assessment based on National Curriculum levels continues to be used and students progress monitored accordingly. King’s College, The British School of Madrid keeps abreast of all curriculum developments in progress in the UK and pursues those policies best suited to the students’ needs.
