Academics | College Section

The College Section comprises O and A level students, divided into four year groups (Class X to the Second Year A-Level Class). The O-level provides a balanced curriculum of six compulsory and four optional subjects preparing students for the Cambridge Assessment 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, Humanities and Arts courses. They are not channelled into Mathematics, Science, Humanities or Arts streams exclusively and this enables some interesting combinations to be possible not available elsewhere.

In addition, all students study PE and an enrichment subject leading to an extra AS level over the two years of First and Second Year. The choices available for the enrichment subject currently include: Global Perspectives, Thinking Skills, Project Based Learning, Coding or The General Paper . The enrichment subject ensures that students' 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 A level subjects.
