The Middle phase includes Years 7 to 9 (typically for learners aged from 11 to 14 years). This phase of schooling provides a natural progression from primary to secondary education with clear learning objectives and a solid foundation in the areas of English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Information Literacy, Religious Studies, Art, Music and  Health and Physical Education. Each of the classes in Middle School has a class teacher who also functions as a pastoral tutor for the class, and a small number of other teachers who specialise in their particular subject or subject groups. The pastoral tutor will be the first point of contact for the students in his/her care.

Subject lessons will be taught based on the UK National Curriculum by specialist teachers.

Towards the end of the Christmas Term (Term II), the students of Year 9 will be introduced to the subject options available for the IGCSE course to be covered in Years 10 and 11.  Students will choose their IGCSE subjects with the help of their parents well ahead of the start of Year 10 (ideally over the Christmas break), according to a set of elective lines the College will provide.  English Language, Mathematics and Religious Studies will be compulsory/core subjects.  In addition to these, 5 optional/elective subjects will be chosen. Religious Studies will be undertaken as a rule in Years 9 and 10 – instead of Years 10 and 11 as for other IGCSE subjects – in order to ease the study load for students in their examination year.


The Senior phase is comprised of Years 10 and 11 (typically students aged between 14 and 16 years). Senior students study and prepare to sit for the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education external examinations – IGCSE – the world’s most popular international qualification for 14-16 year olds. IGCSE  provides an excellent preparation for Cambridge Advanced Level studies. Cambridge syllabuses are international in flavour but with a local relevance; designed for an international student body with content to suit a wide variety of schools, but avoiding cultural bias.

In Year 10, PAIS students will be expected to take 2 elective subjects/courses in addition to the 3 compulsory/core subjects of  English Language, Maths,  and Religious Studies. These courses are one-year courses and the IGCSE examinations take place at the end of Year 10. In Year 11 students will take an additional two elective subjects as one-year courses and will sit the exams for their three compulsory subjects.

Examination grades range from A* to F. Students are required to pass at C level in at least 5 subjects in order to gain a pass at IGCSE level.


A Level (or Advanced Level) phase is composed of Years 12 and 13 (typically students aged 17 and 18 years). Students undertaking A level examinations study and sit the General Certificate of Education (GCE) external exams.  A Level courses can be completed at two levels, Advanced Subsidiary level (AS) and Advanced Level (A Level).  In the first year of a course, students complete the AS components (exam/s and any required course work) to gain their AS level standard. PAIS offers primarily AS Level courses with A Level courses only made available upon request in order to provide the greatest possible course selection for students.  A Level courses build upon the AS level with a second year at the A2 level.  Once the A2 components of the course have been completed the student is awarded an overall A Level grade for that course.

In Year 12 and Year 13, students will have the two compulsory subjects of English and Divinity. The remainder of their timetable will be filled with electives that progress from previous courses taken at IGCSE and additional courses without prerequisites. In addition, students will have the option of taking exam preparation minor courses. Students are expected to complete the programme with a minimum of five AS Level courses completed.

As a Christian parent, I want my child to grow both spiritually and academically, and yes, I chose PAIS. I have been so impressed with all the learning performances and resources from the school. I am very pleased to see my child is taught in a loving, caring and educational Christian atmosphere. A big applause and massive thanks to the teachers who are nurturing and supporting my child to improve his learning and confidence. Your expertise in teaching has put my mind at ease. The academics are exceptional and the teaching methods and approaches are excellent as they are using direct methods (Teaching English Through English). This is a great school that my child loves and has come on lots since starting this school.

The best part of PAIS are the teachers, sports and their friends. For me what's most special about PAIS is the teacher's love for God and the students.   The love and guidance our children receive from their teachers in their studies and in the development of their personalities are remarkable.   We feel peaceful and grateful our children are in the good hands of their teachers both professionally and personally.

This school is not only guiding our children to grow in knowledge, but is also helping them to mature spiritually, socially, and physically in balance. It is very often heard that children are enjoying their time at school. We introduce this school for parents searching for international schools, and we hope to keep doing so.
