Our Primary School Curriculum (Year 1 - 6)

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

  • Year 1

We take the best aspects of this consistent and rigorous framework and adapt it to ensure that our primary school curriculum is relevant for children growing up in Hong Kong, whilst also placing a strong emphasis on educating global citizens. The English National 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.

Where does Primary fit into the school curriculum?

The English National Curriculum is split into segments known as "key stages".

Our children prepare for the University of Cambridge IGCSE qualifications (Year 10-11) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) (Year 12-13).

Learning at our primary school in Hong Kong

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 a Thematic approach to learning, where possible, as we believe that learning needs to be contextualised for children to make connections and make sense of the world. However, we also believe that some important aspects of learning are best taught in a stand-alone fashion. Our curriculum is both knowledge and skills rich, while also putting a strong emphasis on values. Our talented teachers use judgements about whether learning should be enquiry-based, child-led or project based but we always follow a child-centred approach and seek to inspire a love of learning for all.

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.

Detailed curriculum information per year group is shared with parents via our online platform ‘Firefly’. You can see the outlines of the Themes studied here. The PSCHE unit at the start of each year focuses on the emotional well-being of our children and ensures they start the year health and happy and ready to learn.
