Secondary Education
A place where every child is given an equal opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
Be the best version of yourself you can be.
Our Secondary Education focuses on encouraging young adults to be the best version of themselves and give back to the community. We believe that education must be holistic and not limited to only academic achievement. 

We support our students to not only pursue academic excellence but to develop good social behaviour, and strong character and prepare them for success in their future careers. This is done through a mixture of delivered class lessons, self-managed learning, community service and skills training.

In the classroom

Our Secondary Education centres around the IGCSE syllabus and prepares students to sit for the O'level examinations.

Our warm and friendly environment improves their wellbeing and support system. We understand that a safe and comfortable learning environment is vital to their success.
Beyond the classroom
In addition to our IGCSE curriculum, there is a variety of wider learning opportunities available to our secondary students.

From Volunteerism and Leadership Program to vocational training, Travel and Learn, and the annual Faisal Cup Tournament, every opportunity is taken to develop confidence and pursue passion and nurture talents.
