Senior School is a transition stage – a bridge – from childhood to youth, from education in school to institutions of higher learning. Perhaps more than any other period in life, this is the period when character begins to form and the world is perceived in a more intellectual manner. The curriculum in Senior School is based on the National Curriculum for England, with enhancements made by MIGS to cater to an international community of students. The whole course of study throughout Senior School is designed to encourage a spirit of academic curiosity and thepursuit of knowledge both in and out of the classroom. This is achieved through lessons in classroom, formal prep time and links between academic and co-curricular opportunities. The Senior School curriculum at MIGS takes on a rigorous approach – one that drives students to work predominantly on their own and be responsible for their own actions and futures.
There are two Key Stages in Senior School – Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 – with principally different approaches to study.
