In primary school we follow the English National Curriculum. In later years students follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme and Diploma, a trusted and globally recognised system of learning. We promote language learning from an early age, and encourage your child to think globally. Since August 2016, students aged between 10 and 12 can chose to follow an English-French bilingual curriculum based on the "plan d'études romand" (PER) as an optimal preparation for the Bilingual English-French Swiss Maturité.

Our school welcomes students from 3 to 18 years old, and offers the benefits of an English education from early years education to the internationally-recognised IB Diploma.

  • Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) (3-5 years old)
  • Primary (5-11 years old)
  • Secondary (11-16 years old)
  • IB Diploma (17-18 years old)

Understanding the English National Curriculum (ages 3-11)

The English National Curriculum is broken down into sections, which are called "Key Stages". Below is a table explaining the key stages and the ages that they relate to. Our teachers are familiar with the standards of British education, as well as international approaches.


Key stages Ages Years
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) 3-5 Nursery and Reception
Key Stage 1 (KS1) 5-7 1, 2
Key Stage 2 (KS2) 7-11 3, 4, 5, 6


The IB Middle Years Programme (ages 11-16)

Between the ages of 11 and 16 your child will follow the highly regarded IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). This prepares them well for the IB Diploma in later years.


The IB Diploma (ages 16-18)

Our students aged 16-18 study for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, which is respected by universities and colleges worldwide.
