Secondary School covers Years 7 to 11 (ages 11 to 16). Learners study towards the globally recognised International General Certificates of Secondary Education (IGCSEs) which lead them to their IB Diploma in Years 12 and 13. At Nexus we recognise that this is an exciting and challenging time for young adolescents as they transition through many significant physical, emotional, social and cognitive developments and we support them through this at every stage.
Teenagers develop to have a far deeper levels of understanding and reasoning, make strong connections across our broad curriculum and have an awareness of the long-term applications of the learning. They are beginning to carve their places in the world, both within their peer groups, family unit and society. At Nexus, we encourage learners to constantly inquire, reflect and take risks in their learning, helping them develop into confident and independent young people.
Education for our learners extends beyond class time with over 90 co-curricular activities, from Robotics to Climbing. Our teenagers have a wide range of activities to explore and encourage their passions.
