At Key Stage 4, it is an essential learning journey for SBIS students to be well-prepared in their transitions into A-Level, Pre-University or Foundation courses locally or internationally. Hence, SBIS Key Stage 4 programme strikes a balance between the curriculum and co-curricular to encourage the students to discover and pursue their passions and realise their full potential by crafting their personalised pathway.

In SBIS Secondary School, all secondary students are required to have an Apple MacBook for daily lessons and learning. This is also to promote and instill creativity by learning iMovie, Garageband, Coding and so on. 

All secondary students will be exposed to M.B.A. as well. M.B.A. is a platform to cultivate the entrepreneurial mindset among students by exposing them to various industries through case studies, analysis of business strategies, excursions, surveys and interviews. It is an initiative to encourage secondary level students to apply their academic knowledge to the needs and demands of the real world. Steering towards current societal and economic issues, SBIS students have to think towards ways of which they may contribute to the community. Ideas and potentials are constantly discussed to encourage creativity and innovation in facing challenges.

The secondary school age requirements are: Age 11+ to 16+

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the international equivalent of the GCSE/ O Levels examinations in the UK or SPM in Malaysia. The IGCSE offered at SBIS is prepared and marked by the Cambridge Assessment International Education Examination Board in the UK. The qualification is globally recognised and opens many doors for students studying locally or internationally.
