How do we prepare a child to take the next step?
Our Primary School curriculum focuses on helping your child to become an inspired and able learner, who is able to think independently and yet respect the views of others.
We give your child confidence in individual abilities, and an appreciation of one's place in a diverse, changing and exhilarating world.
We encourage your child to love learning, and to apply what is learned to other subjects and situations.
We help your child discover answers, uncover new perspectives, and maintain the curiosity to find out more.
Using guidelines set out in the English National Curriculum, we build on your child's firm knowledge of math, literacy and Spanish.
The International Primary Curriculum gives your child a broad understanding of subjects such as history, geography, art, and technology, and promotes an international perspective.
Students will carry out scientific experiments and investigations, develop mental math ability and problem solving skills, and work on their own learning goals which promote respect, adaptability, co-operation, and global thinking.
We also extend our program of music, with individual lessons, band practices, and concerts throughout the year.
In Kindergarten and 2nd grade, we offer two half-hour music lessons a week with a specialist teacher. We have violin lessons in small groups, and students perform recitals at the end of each term. Each class plays at a class assembly, and gathers to perform in our Spring Musical.
Between 3rd and 6th grades, students receive an hour-long brass band lesson a week, half an hour of theory, and an hour-long weekly general music session. As well as our class assemblies, students showcase their talents at a Summer Musical.
Our students have two Physical Education lessons a week, taught by specialist PE teachers. Your child will get the opportunity to try a multitude of sports, from tag rugby to soccer, cricket and track and field. All classes receive swimming lessons, and are trained to be confident in the water.
There are a range of competitions through the school year, from inter-house activities to inter-school competitions. However, the main focus is on building teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play, and demonstrating the benefits of exercise and healthy living.
House competitions enable students from each of the four houses to earn points through achievement or sportsmanship, and compete for the chance to win the Sports Cup at the end of the school year.
