High school program in Repton School Dubai
Choosing subjects from the science block, students can stay in 3 separate disciplines or prefer a special combined course Double Award, which results in two IGCSE exams - a grade about this is necessarily put in the diploma. Without fail, all students attend physical education classes and the PSHE course (these disciplines do not end with exams). The list of compulsory courses is as follows:
- Modern foreign language (Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Arabic - according to the choice of the student).
Each student determines for himself at least 4 electives, focusing on their own interests and academic needs:
- Business fundamentals
- Art and design
- Physical education (optional)
- Design and technology.
Before enrolling in the program, each student passes an introductory test. If it turns out that the level of English is not enough to fully absorb the curriculum, the student will be offered a supporting course for foreign students EAL. From the 7th to the 9th grade this course is included in the general school schedule, in the 10th and 11th grades it can replace the study of the second foreign language, and 12-13 grades are intended for schoolchildren who plan to enter the universities of Britain.
There is also a special transitional program designed for pupils of 7-9 grade with insufficiently high language level. The essence of the course is a comprehensive study of the language along with a limited range of other disciplines (including mathematics and natural sciences) - and as soon as the language level becomes sufficient, the students join the general course of high school.
