The Key Stage Three years are an increasingly formal period of education for the pupils. Pupils are taught all subjects by specialist teachers in the medium of English, with the exception of the language option subjects. The curriculum in Key Stage Three is rich, drawing on a wide range of academic, creative and performance areas. In addition, the Extra Curricular Activities (ECA) programme in Key Stage Three is expanded to take into account growing responsibility and maturity of this Key Stage. This allows pupils to quickly gauge their interest and skills in new areas and subjects.
Within the final year of Key Stage Three, Year 9, the pupils will select subject options and have made conscious decisions of which courses they will take going into Key Stage Four and for their future International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations at the age of 16.
The provision of state-of-the-art facilities and dedicated teaching via the medium of English, is intended in the long-turn to provide the pupils of Haileybury Astana with the potential to access the best possible university education in the UK, USA and the rest of the world in the future.
