Azzan Bin Qais International School offers a bilingual curriculum combining the curriculum of the Ministry of Education of The Sultanate of Oman with Cambridge International Primary and Secondary curriculums and elements of the National Curriculum for England.
The school day begins with Flag assembly and our core values are embedded into the day to day operation of the school. In addition to the academic timetable, there are after school clubs, sports teams, leadership and service opportunities, the Student Council, and charitable events.
The Secondary section comprises three stages: Key Stage 3 (Grades 7 & 8); Key Stage 4 (Grades 9 & 10) and Key Stage 5 (Grades 11 & 12).
In Key Stage 3, the curriculum includes Arabic, English, Mathematics, Science, Islamic and Social Studies, Art, Music, ICT, Geography and PE. All students enter for Cambridge Checkpoint examinations in English, Mathematics and Science in Grade 8. Expat students who have MOE exemptions from some subjects may study Cambridge Global Perspectives
In Key Stage 4, students opt for GED or IGCSE pathways with common compulsory subjects: Mathematics, English, Arabic, Islamic, Social Studies and PE. (Exemptions apply for expats.) The GED course includes Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Art, Music and ICT, and the IGCSE course offers a range of optional subjects: ICT, Art, Geography, Business Studies, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Cambridge IGCSE examinations are taken in Grade 10.
Key Stage 5 also offers two pathways: GED or International A Levels. Students are encouraged to select subjects which match their chosen future career path, be it Business, Law, Medicine, Engineering or a wide range of other university study options. Many of our students go on to secure government scholarships for university study. Our students also have the opportunity to study for IELTS, which is recognised worldwide for study in English.
