Marefat International School follows an enhanced version of the British National Curriculum.

The British national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so that children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject. At Britannica, we enhance and differentiate this standard set of curriculum subjects and their content to meet our international needs.

Key stages

The British national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS). At the end of each key stage or more frequently as in Britannica’s case, the school and the teacher will formally assess your child’s performance.


In the Primary school (5-11 years old) we understand that these years are crucial for the students to obtain a solid grounding of the core academic subjects. At the same time it is important that children have an exciting and fun experience at school.


In our Secondary Department (11 - 18 years), we offer the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), Advanced Subsidiary Levels (AS) and Advanced Levels (A Levels), provide graduating students with gold standard diplomas for entry to leading universities around the world.
