Mr. Ferguson and his team are determined to give students in Chengdu the same academic advantages enjoyed in other cities. “LIS Primary has already started this process with the implementation of the English National Curriculum for Maths, English and PE for the coming year. Integrating this with the International Primary Curriculum will give the best educational experiences, providing for the holistic development of our students, while ensuring they benefit from the high academic standards which we insist upon. We are proud of our established STEAM curriculum from MIT, the world’s number one university, and our Performing Arts curriculum from the world-famous Juilliard School. These unique programs were specially designed for Nord Anglia schools, and alongside our Global Classroom and UNICEF collaboration, give our students an experience beyond the reach of other schools.”
The Primary school is developing a complementary parent information pack to help parents understand the key objectives at each stage of their child’s learning, as well as how they can support their children to reach the high standards these changes will bring. In conjunction with the Léman Family Association there will be workshops planned over the coming months with our teachers to help to fully unpack the curriculum for our parents and students.
