Academics

Secondary School

“In Key Stage 3 (age 11 to 14), we follow an adapted version of the National Curriculum for England and Wales, students will become equipped in a variety of subjects, including English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, Chinese, Mongolian Language, Mongolian History, Geography, Drama, Music, Art, Design Technology, PSHE and PE.

A range of wider learning initiatives including trips, inter-school competitions and extra-curricular activities are organised to support the academic subjects. The British School of Ulaanbaatar aims to develop students academically and holistically, which is applied across all aspects of learning.

In Key Stage 4 (age 14 to 16), students are prepared for external examinations in IGCSE. All students sit examinations in English Language and Mathematics and Double Science. All students also follow a non-examined component in Mongolian Language, Mongolian History, PSHE and PE.

In addition to these compulsory subjects, students will study for and take examinations in a further three subjects from a choice of Art, Third Science, Geography, History, Design Technology, PE, Music, ICT, Business Studies and Chinese.

Key Stage 4 is a significant and influential stage of a student’s academic journey as students begin to make personal choices.  Students learn to become more independent and start to develop a more clearly defined sense of direction for the future.”
