Primary School

The International School of Moscow is a place where children have many opportunities to develop and thrive. Learning is not limited to the classroom but can also take place on the sports field, preparing for a performance, through a community service project or in any one of the variety of activities that pupils regularly engage in at ISM.

The aim of the Primary curriculum at ISM is to offer pupils a strong academic foundation and a diverse learning experience that allows them to excel in those areas where they have special interest or ability.

The programme is based on English National Curriculum (ENC) and has been enriched and adapted to our context. We aim for a high standard of attainment and many pupils will be working at a level that goes beyond the objectives of the ENC.

While core subjects such as English, Maths and ICT form a central part of the curriculum, our Integrated Curriculum for pupils in Years 1-4 offers a broad range of subjects including Science, Geography, Art and Design and History. In Year 5 and 6, we move towards a more clearly defined subject orientated timetable with increasing access to subject specialist teachers in preparation for Secondary School.

As an international school, we place great importance in the learning of a second language and provide opportunities for pupils to acquire a high level of fluency. All children have to take a second language and can choose from Russian, Spanish and French.

We are committed to ensuring our young pupils experience a wide range of disciplines. Everyone is required to play in a sports team, learn a musical instrument, take part in a performance and join in one of the school’s various outreach programmes. A range of other optional activities and educational trips complete the programme.
