The main subjects taught through the IPC are History, Geography, Art and Design Technology, and we pay close attention to linking back to our core subjects of Science, English and Mathematics too. Maintaining our focus on helping all our students to become global citizens, the thematic units in the IPC all include a focus on developing international mindedness, as well as clear learning and personal objectives throughout. For more detailed information on how we teach different age groups at primary level, explore our guides below or get in touch with our admissions team.
English is the main language of instruction and communication in our school. Out primary students can study an additional language including Vietnamese, French, and Spanish with a specialist teacher from Year 1.
Our STEAM curriculum
Science, technology, engineering, arts and maths (STEAM) are taught differently at BIS Hanoi. Our students benefit from our exclusive partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) which helps to shape their curriculum. MIT brings our students school challenges which encourage them to think creatively and solve real-world problems, as well as the opportunity to take part in special MIT events throughout the year, including an annual educational visit to the MIT campus. We also provide students with a dedicated STEAM facility and specialist MIT trained teacher. Visit our STEAM page to read about our exciting curriculum with MIT.
