Key Stage 4 - Years 10 and 11

The Key Stage 4 curriculum at the British International School of Ljubljana offers breadth and balance, with courses leading to IGCSE certification from Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE).

All students study a core curriculum, which includes compulsory external examination courses as well as non-examination subjects, and are given a selection of optional examination courses in a variety of subjects to choose from. These optional subjects are selected by students in close consultation with parents and teachers. Students are encouraged to maintain a broad and balanced curriculum, bearing in mind their pathway after the completion of their IGCSE examinations.

Our students also take part in cross-school activities, which give them the opportunities to challenge their skills beyond the curriculum, such as participation in the International Award for Young People - known in the Slovenia as MEPI and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in the UK.
