We deliver an academically rigorous education enriched with robust co-curricular, sport and enrichment activities that stretch the boundaries of student ability.
Inspection indicators show that the quality of education delivered in a typical Fortes school is ‘Good with Outstanding features’ as rated by KHDA’s inspection bureau, DSIB.
With exceptional teachers and school infrastructure, underpinned by a strong curriculum covering – Mathematics, English, the Sciences, Computing (ICT), Design & Technology, the Humanities, Education in Human Values, the Creative and Performing Arts, Modern Foreign Languages, Physical Education, Sports, and a host of Enrichment activities – we deliver a world-class education.
Sunmarke follows the National Curriculum of England culminating in the GCSE programme in Years 10 to 11 and the A Level programme in Years 12 and 13. From the third year of operations, we will continue to offer the National Curriculum to Year 11, but will offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13. In this way, we will offer the best of both curricula – the structured framework, rigour and creativity of the National Curriculum until Year 11, and the internationalism, breadth, and flexibility of the IBDP, which allows students to pursue multiple career pathways at university.
Both curricula encourage students to be active learners and to openly challenge, debate and discuss ideas with their teachers and peers. The curricula lay a strong emphasis on developing critical thinking, problem-solving, communication ability, personal effectiveness and perseverance, and ‘learning how to learn’.
