In Key Stage 4, the IGCSE (International Certificate of Secondary Education) subjects determine the curriculum, based on compulsory subjects and options. The IGCSE programme of study covers the full Key Stage, beginning in Year 10 and reaching completion in Year 11 with the external IGCSE examinations.

Apart from British subjects, all Key Stage 4 students take Spanish Language (Lengua), History and Geography (Sociales) and Valenciano as compulsory requirements for Spanish students in international education in Spain. Matematicas, sports and PSHE are alo compulsory although students in Key Stage 4 do not sit formal exams in these subjects. Those students who do not follow the Spanish Curriculum will take a fourth optional subject.

The students take the following external examinations (where appropriate).

Year 10 (3º ESO)

    • IGCSE Spanish

Year 11 (4º ESO)

    • AS-level Spanish
    • IGCSEs in core and option subjects

The IGCSE is the international version of the examinations taken by students in England and Wales of the same age. The students take different examinations in up to 10 subjects. These examinations are taken in English.
