Primary School Curriculum

Our Hong Kong primary school curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum and is designed to provide the highest academic quality of education. 

We take the best aspects of this consistent and rigorous framework and adapt it to ensure that our elementary and middle school curriculum is relevant for children growing up in Hong Kong, whilst also placing a strong emphasis on educating global citizens. This curriculum is used by over 30,000 international schools in the UK and overseas, which brings reassurance to parents and stability to students – both important factors when moving between countries.

Stages of the primary school curriculum

The English National Curriculum is split into segments known as "key stages". Our school will initially offer education to children aged 5 to 12, covering Key Stages 1, 2 and part of 3.

As the school grows year on year, we will prepare our children for the University of Cambridge IGCSE qualifications (Year 10-11) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma in senior years (Year 12-13).

Learning at our primary school

Our methodology at Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong emphasises the needs and targets of each individual child. A positive mindset is encouraged to build confidence and ensure success.

There is a rigorous development of English and Maths skills, while all other subjects are dealt with in a variety of ways. We use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), projects and themes to inspire and challenge our students in a child-centred approach.

Pupils will be taught Art, Music, Drama, PE and Mandarin by specialist teachers throughout primary school, and Spanish will be offered from Year 5 upwards. We take an holistic approach to each child’s education to ensure we’re producing well-rounded students who are responsible citizens, showing respect and making an effective contribution to society.

We send curriculum newsletters at the beginning of each half term.
