History

Primary school

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.

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 school

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.

In Years 12 and 13 (17 and 18 years of age) students study the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, a 2-year course undertaken through the International Baccalaureate Organisation.
