KLISS is committed to supporting the continuing improvement of the quality of educational outcomes for all learners following the Cambridge programmes.
We recognise that classroom teaching has the largest impact on the quality of educational outcomes. What teachers know and do, make the difference in improving student learning outcomes – their knowledge, pedagogical practices and relationship with students.
In support of this, KLISS adopts the CAIE’S Cambridge Teacher Standards to define key characteristics and practices of effective teachers.
KLISS teachers employ a variety of teaching strategies in the classroom. This will normally include carefully-designed individual learning activities, group work and whole-class instruction. The key element is the quality of learner engagement and the opportunities provided for feedback between the learner and teacher to guide the next learning steps. Whole class instruction can be a highly effective instructional approach if it includes discussion and learners have the opportunity to respond and contribute.
Our teachers apply assessment practices that regularly inform them whether learners are reaching their objectives. These assessment techniques also allow learners to understand where they are on their learning journey and how they can improve.
Our teachers model the Cambridge learner attributes. They are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged because they:
Our curriculum is delivered in a safe and supportive, yet challenging learning environment in which all members of our School community are valued, respected and allowed to succeed.

Our lower secondary curriculum ties in to the knowledge apprehension of the subjects later on in IGCSE. This three-years programme lays the groundwork and gives our students the opportunity to experience all of the subjects that they can select in their KS4 (IGCSE).
Here apart from the core academic subjects, the creative arts are used to provide opportunities for learners to learn how to express themselves, to develop self-esteem, thinking skills, confidence and a sense of achievement. To enrich this important aspect of the curriculum we invite creative practitioners to work in our School and develop exciting and innovative practices.
The subjects on offer at this level are:
In KS4, students follow a two-year program (Y10 & Y11), which leads to the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education).
We want our learners to combine both a deep understanding of their own culture and nation, with the skills to be global learners who are able to contribute and adapt to the uncertainties of the modern world. We believe our learners need to develop the academic abilities, life skills and attitudes needed to be successful in higher education and in the world of work.
IGCSE subjects on offer:
KLISS adopts a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy which encourages the integration of technology as a tool to enhance learning, raise standards and performance rates, as well as to prepare students for life beyond school. Students will be able to connect seamlessly to the School’s Wi-Fi network to access information and to collaborate with other learners.
For full details, kindly contact the School for an updated copy of the KLISS’s BYOD policy & ICT Usage Policy.
At KLISS, we encourage our students to be actively involved in extra-curricular activities to complement their academic pursuit, making for a more balanced and meaningful holistic education. We have a diverse range of activities geared to suit every individual’s needs and at the same time provide opportunities to challenge and encourage our learners to excel and lay a strong foundation for the life-long learning journey.
