Academics | College Section

The College Section comprises O and A level students, divided into four year groups (Class X to the Second A-Level Class). The O-level provides a balanced curriculum of six compulsory and four optional subjects preparing students for the Cambridge International Examinations.

Admission to Advanced level courses is not automatic and students have to prove themselves in terms of attendance and attitude as well as aptitude at O-level to gain admission (if not yet in KGS) or re-admission (if currently in KGS).

If selected, they choose four specialist subjects from a wide range of Mathematics, Science and Humanities courses. They are not channelled into Science or Arts streams exclusively and this enables some interesting combinations to be possible not available elsewhere.

In addition all students are entered for the AS-level Thinking Skills and AS General Paper, which ensures that their facility with Critical Thinking and the English language is sharp enough to contend with university level education in the future, and exposes them to wider perspectives on life beyond the confines of their chosen subjects. Selected students study the demanding Global Perspectives AS level or pusue Project Based Learning or complete an AS level in Computer Science as an alternative to the AS General Paper.
