Students are also equipped for the Cambridge Preliminary English Test (Year 7) and the Cambridge First Certificate in English (Year 8 and 9). International students, who do not have a high enough level of Spanish to follow the Spanish compulsory subjects (Spanish language, social sciences and Valenciano), study Spanish as a foreign language.

Key Stage 4

In Key Stage 4, the IGCSE (International Certificate of Secondary Education) subjects determine the curriculum, based on compulsory subjects and options. The IGCSE programme of study covers the full Key Stage, beginning in Year 10 and reaching completion in Year 11 with the external IGCSE examinations.

The compulsory IGCSE subjects for all Key Stage 4 students are:

The students take the following external examinations.
