Middle Phase (Years 6 - 8)

Students in the Middle Phase (MP) at BSK follow the English National Curriculum Key Stage 2 in Year 6 and Key Stage 3 in Years 7 and 8, subject to adaptations for the Kuwaiti context.

We pay close attention to the transition from Year 5 into Middle Phase, and have carefully designed systems to help students make this important transition successfully.

Progression through Middle Phase enables students to be fully prepared for Year 9, which is the final year of Key Stage 3 and forms the foundation on which GCSE and IGCSE courses are then built.

Great importance is placed on our regular Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Assembly programmes. PSHE is delivered by the Class Tutor and covers a variety of suitable topics which enable students to learn about different values and attitudes, including friendship, citizenship, responsible social behaviour, cooperation and teamwork, developing good relationships and respecting people’s differences.

All students will receive a Student Planner at the start of the school year. Students must take great care of their planner and record their homework, messages and test dates. Parents are also encouraged to use the planner to send any messages to their children’s teachers or tutor. If your child has been absent, or you know that they are going to be in the future, please record this in the planner so the tutor can register the absent dates on our school system. Please check the planner regularly and sign it every week.

As much as we encourage excellent effort and work towards the students’ academic studies, we believe it is vitally important for all students to involve themselves in an extracurricular activity of some sort. We would be happy to advise your child on what activities might best complement his or her existing skills and interests.
