Learning in the Secondary School


In the secondary school, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum, aimed at stretching and supporting students to meet their potential. At Key Stage 3, the National Curriculum for England and Wales (modified for our context), forms the basis for learning and is excellent preparation for both the Cambridge IGCSE programme at Key Stage 4 and the IB Diploma programme at Key Stage 5. These externally examined qualifications are internationally recognised and are considered to be the gold standard for university preparation. The Czech programme at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 forms an integral part of Park Lane curriculum. It has been designed for both Czech and non-Czech students to help them broaden their knowledge and understanding of the Czech language but also the culture of the country in which they study. 

To find out more, please visit the links to the year group pages above, which are organised according to the three different 'Key Stages' of education at Park Lane.

Character and Values

Our students are encouraged to be well-rounded individuals who contribute to the community in a positive way. The Park Lane 5 Rs - Respectful, Responsible, Resilient, Risk-takers, Resourceful - not only help to prepare our students for the world beyond school but also serve as a precursor to the IB Learner Profile. The 5 Rs are the central values embedded into our everyday lives at Park Lane.
