The Common Entrance curriculum is followed in Years 7 and 8 at the Preparatory School. The rigour, breadth and depth of the Common Entrance syllabus provides an excellent grounding for all those children moving into Year 9 and then onto their chosen course of study in the later years of secondary school. Indeed, it is the principle set of examinations accepted by top UK independent schools such as Eton or Charterhouse School.
Pupils will sit examination papers in the core subjects: English, Maths, Sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology). In addition they will work towards sitting Common Entrance Examinations in History, Geography and Spanish.
MKSHK will benefit from the experience and significant expertise of Mount Kelly UK in delivering the Common Entrance curriculum. Indeed, whilst most pupils from Mount Kelly Prep graduate to the senior school, some have also gained scholarships to some of the other top independent schools in the country such as Marlborough and Cheltenham Ladies College. This serves as a real illustration of the strength of their curriculum, learning environment and teaching practices, all of which MKSHK will benefit from.
