- Secondary Matters
We believe in educating students to become global citizens of the future.
What does this mean? Helping them to develop lifelong values, explore the world around them, collaborate with others, and take responsibility for their own learning. In this way our students leave school as well-rounded individuals, along with meeting all the learning goals for each Key Stage, and completing the IGCSE and A-level examinations. Students can follow their entire learning journey with us, from early years through to A-level, ensuring consistency and stability.
During their time at Mougins School, students develop:
The British education system is divided into learning chapters, called Key Stages, as follows:
Early Years Foundation Stage (ages 3 to 5)
Key Stage 1: primary education
Key Stage 2: primary education
Key Stage 3: secondary education
Key Stage 4: secondary education
Key Stage 5: post-16 education
We monitor our students’ progress through continuous assessment during each school year with evaluations at the end of each Key Stage. We use both of these tools to build an overall picture of each child’s progress. Continuous assessment means we are able to adapt our teaching to meet the needs of each student quickly and with flexibility.
At the end of Key Stage 4, at age 16, students take the IGCSE exams, and then A-levels and/or BTEC exams at age 18. These qualifications are highly regarded worldwide, allowing our students to be accepted at the best universities in the UK, France, USA, Canada, Europe, and further afield.
