KIS follows the arrangements for the National Curriculum for England, which groups classes into Key Stages. Our academic year runs from August to July and, as per the UK guidelines, students are placed into year groups according to their age on the 1st of September. However, the school reserves the right to recommend placement in an alternative year group, if this is deemed to be in the best interests of the child. Once assigned to a year group, a student will remain with this cohort throughout their time with us.
