For those of you who didn’t know KISU, it is an international school in Kampala, Uganda, located in the neighborhood of Bukoto. It was formerly named Kabira International School of Uganda.
KISU is blessed with a truly international staff and student body made up of over 50 nationalities as well as a palpably warm, tolerant and welcoming ethos but to these inherent advantages it has added over the years a wide range of events, strategies and activities designed to shape and develop the whole child.
Kampala International School of Uganda (usually called KISU) has a primary section for students aged 2 to approximately 10/11 years of age. The school broadly follows the National Curriculum for England, modified to take into account the school’s location and international student body.
School has key stages
KISU’s Early years department incorporates KG2 (2 years of age), KG3 (3 years of age) and Reception (4 years of age).
Key Stage 1 (KS1) incorporates Year 1 (5 years of age) and Year 2 (6 years of age).
Key Stage 2 (KS2) incorporates Year 3 (7 years of age),Year 4 (8 years of age), Year 5 (9 years of age) and Year 6 (10 years of age)
In the Primary section, there are 2 or 3 classes per year group, depending on student numbers. Each class has both a teacher and at least one Teaching Assistant (T.A.).
Secondary is from Years 7–13.
Key Stage 3 incorporates Years 7-9 (approx 11-14 years of age) and these students continue to study the National Curriculum for England, modified to reflect the nature of the school.
In Years 10 and 11 (15 to 16 years of age) students study an IGCSE programme (similar to UK IGCSEs but more international in nature). These examinations are undertaken through the Cambridge University and assessed by external examinations at the end of Year 11.
