Its structure ensures that children develop their potential in all areas, with a particular focus on the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.

International Primary Curriculum (IPC)

The IPC is a world leading international curriculum used by schools in more than 90 countries around the world and developed by our curriculum team Fieldwork Education as part of Nord Anglia Education. The curriculum has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. The IPC takes a global approach to learning, helping children to connect their studies to where they are living now but also to look at learning from the perspective of people in other countries enabling them to be truly global citizens.
