Moreover, our faculty has vast experience in the British system of examinations and university counselling, supporting students in achieving ambitious academic next steps and admission to top universities around the world, particularly in the United Kingdom and USA.

Our High School curriculum allows pupils not only to excel in their exams but also prepares them for a life-long love of learning owing to the continuation of Cosmo's innovative approach to learning and 1:1 laptop programme to embed the use of technology and critical research skills.
