In Year 10 (3GCSE) students begin a two-year course to GCSE or IGCSE.  At the beginning of Year 11 (2GCSE) most students reduce to a programme of 9 subjects, although a minority continue with 10. The examinations are taken at the end of the course. Students are fully prepared for final examinations by their teachers, many of whom are examiners or chief examiners for the various examination boards. Field trips are organised to support the learning in the classroom, especially in Art, History and Geography. Computer programming is taught to all students in Year 10 and is an option in subsequent years. French and P.E. are compulsory in all years.

Advanced level or A-level subjects which act as a passport into British universities, consist of two separate examinations. AS levels comprising 2 or 3 units per subject are taken at the end of Year 12 (PAL) and the A-level is taken with two or three units at the end of Year 13 (TAL).  In Year 12 (PAL) students study 5 subjects, with most reducing to 4 in Year 13 (TAL).

In recognition of our unique situation as part of a French school all students take IGCSE (for native speakers), AS and A-level in French.
