Upper Secondary – Key Stage 5, years 12, 13

This stage of learning represents an extension and further specialisation from Key Stage 4. The Embassy International School has started the process for IB Diploma programme approval. This process takes around three years. Information about the IB diploma Programme can be found from the IB website:


The examinations taken at the end of this stage of schooling, the exams which are used by Universities to select candidates, are called ‘A levels’, and build upon prior learning from the GCSE exams taken at the end of Key Stage 4.


At this stage of school, only PE is compulsory, whilst all other subjects are chosen by individuals. A Careers and University Advisor is on staff in school to help with selecting the most appropriate subjects for a pupil’s chosen pathway. Typically three subjects are chosen by candidates at A level.


‘As level’ is an exam on a lower level than A level and can be taken at the end of year 12.


It is possible to combine subjects with an enrichment programme and thus qualify for the prestigious AQA Baccalaureate.


For Polish citizens we can also arrange a programme of study leading to the Matura exam. This can be in combination with A levels.


Each and every pupil is treated on an individual basis with individual programmes of study put together for them based on their needs and situation.
