The structure of the Primary years combines the National Curriculum for England and The International Primary Curriculum. Our combined curriculum ensures core skills in Maths and Literacy are developed alongside subject specific knowledge that is exciting, active and meaningful to your child and inspires a lifelong love of learning.
A Thematic and Fun Approach to Learning
The International Primary Curriculum is an internationally renowned curriculum, currently used in over 50 countries around the world. Through highly motivational and engaging themes, children learn about science, technology, art and music, geography and history, physical education, literacy and numeracy, in a holistic way. They don't just learn how these subjects directly relate to their world, but also how the subjects relate to one another.
Personalization for Primary School Students
We understand that children learn in different ways and have preferred learning styles. Our highly trained British teachers create varied and interesting learning opportunities that are active, vibrant, and dynamic. We take into account your child’s motivations, prior experiences and knowledge, cultural experiences and learning preferences and plan learning approaches tailored to stretch each individual.
