Key Stage 1 (ages five to seven)
Your child will be educated in a range of subjects at the appropriate level, including English Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Art, Design and Technology, Music, Physical Education (including swimming), Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), Information Technology and French.
Your child will benefit from a structured spelling programme, and a range of exercises and activities that will encourage them to develop fluent reading and confident writing skills. Students are also taught to cultivate handwriting skills, and come up with their own creative written work.
There is also a strong focus on mathematics and sciences and their importance in everyday life. Students are taught to apply these skills to other subjects.
Key Stage 2 (ages seven to 11)
Your child will be encouraged to be inquisitive and develop a real desire to learn.
Our Key Stage 2 curriculum builds on the work already done at EYFS and Key Stage 1, nurturing students to become self-confident, curious and self-disciplined, as well as respectful of their environment and other people.
We achieve this through a range of activities that allow them to practice skills and acquire knowledge, while laying the groundwork for success in adult life. We plan our curriculum carefully to offer a range of stimulating topics and themes, and form links between various subjects so that the student can see the value of different elements of learning.
Students transfer to the secondary stage as independent learners who are willing to take risks and organise their thoughts critically and coherently.
Subject areas include English Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Art, Design and Technology, Music, Physical Education (including swimming), Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), Information Technology and French.
Lessons are taught in English, but the primary curriculum also focuses on the host language, French.
