Primary School

We are conscious that the knowledge our children will need in the future may not yet exist. Our role therefore, is to facilitate the learning process so that children become lifelong learners who can apply their critical thinking skills to increasingly diverse and challenging problem solving situations.

Our Learner Profile identifies the core values we seek to promote. We want our students to be:

Knowledgeable, Principled, Caring, Balanced, open-minded, reflective, Thinkers, Communicators, risk-takers, Inquirers

  • We follow abroad, balanced and relevant primary curriculum which offers coherence and progression from Nursery through to Year 6 and into Secondary School.

  • The majority of the curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum but some adaptations have been made to reflect the needs of our international and multi-cultural student body and to capitalise on the unique opportunities provided by being located in Bratislava.

  • Basing our curriculum on the English National Curriculum enables us to describe individual student attainment and syllabus content at each stage of a child’s development in each curriculum area.

  • All subjects, with the exception of Foreign Languages, are taught in English.

  • Some lessons have fixed timetabled slots such as those taught by specialist teachers. However, as much as possible, we aim to have a fluid and flexibly working day/week to ensure effective delivery of the curriculum while being responsive to students and the immediate environment.

  • Where possible, we aim to exploit links across the curriculum enabling students to reinforce language, key learning concepts and skills.

  • ICT is taught as a discrete subject but computers and iPads are also used to enhance learning across all aspects of the curriculum.
