The Secondary section of the school commences with the one year Pre-IGCSE Year 9 programme, leading into the two years of the IGCSE course during Year's 10 and 11. Upon successful completion of the IGCSE examinations pupils can progress to take their AS and A-level courses in Year's 12 and 13 (which are currently not on offer at Potterhouse School) before moving on to universities across the globe.

Subjects taught in Year 9 include core areas such as English, Mathematics, Sciences and ICT.  Modern Foreign Languages, Humanities and Arts subjects are also covered, along with Physical Education lessons. The Year 9 curriculum provides students with a solid foundation as preparation for their IGCSE course in Year's 10 and 11.

In Year's 10 and 11 students follow courses leading to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations set by the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and Edexcel Boards in the UK.

Most students take IGCSE examinations in nine subjects. Mathematics, English Language and English Literature, and at least one Science subject are compulsory. We also expect students to take at least one Humanities subject and a Modern Foreign Language. The subject choices within this framework are flexible, and the individual needs of students are taken into account.

Information sheets about each subject offered at IGCSE level at Potterhouse are contained in the IGCSE Choices Booklet. Each subject outline includes a brief description of course content and the examination format.
