Europa School UK offers a broad bilingual curriculum. With the International Baccalaureate as its end qualification, students can move on with confidence to universities in the UK or abroad.

In the early years, Europa School follows the contents of the European Schools. We provide all sciences and maths in English. The second language (German or French) is studied to attain near native level (at least C1 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), and both history and geography are taught in this second language.

The seven years of secondary education are organised in the following way:
for the first three years, pupils follow a common curriculum, in what is known as the observation cycle.
some optional subjects

All pupils will begin to study a second foreign language (L3) from secondary year 1 onwards.
In secondary year 2, Latin is offered as an option.

In years 4 and 5, the pre-orientation cycle, science remains compulsory and is subdivided into physics, chemistry and biology, and pupils may choose between the advanced or the normal course in mathematics. Additional options include economics and a third foreign language.

Year 6 and 7 are the exam years, where the students will follow the Diploma Program of the International Baccalaureate.

The curriculum offers pupils a wide range of subjects, giving them a broad education and more time to reflect on what they wish to do with their lives. In addition to the compulsory subjects, music and art are available at all levels, compulsory in the first three years.
