The FutureSchool programmes have been fully aligned to the Northern Ireland Curriculum from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 4. Additionally there is a range of GCSE revision courses for each of the major Examination Boards.

You can rest assured that the programme will complement and work hand-in-hand with their current schoolwork.

For those schools that offer the International Baccalaureate or Cambridge International Examinations curricula, these are also available within FutureSchool as part of its standard curriculum library.
