The National Curriculum for England (UK), appropriately modified for international students, guides and engages students through an innovative learning program.
The secondary level at Tenby International School Tropicana Aman consists of two key stages: Key Stage 3 (Year 7 – 9) and Key Stage 4 (Year 10 – 11). The school provides a balanced education within a positive and stimulating environment, where students feel valued and can grow to their full potential.

Students are able to choose additional preferred courses, with a variety of subjects on offer, including Economics, Business Studies and Physical Education. As an integral part of Key Stage 4 curriculum, our Personal & Social Education (PSE) programme is comprehensive and compulsory. It seeks to develop the student’s awareness of life skills and their role in the various communities they inhabit, be it on family, school, national or international levels. The changing face of the world, with regards to history, politics, the environment and the role of young people, is at the forefront of what the students study. The goal is to give them the confidence and knowledge required to adapt to the demands of a rapidly changing region.
This will lead to the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations and its qualification that is internationally renowned and recognized for the students’ further tertiary studies.
