General Curriculum Overview

We have chosen what we feel are the best international curricula available:

 

Nursery and Reception use our own curriculum developed around the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum taught in England and best practice from around the world.

 

Years 1 to 6 follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) – a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum with a clear process of learning. It has specific learning goals for international mindedness and for personal learning based on cooperation, communication, thoughtfulness, respect, resilience and morality. English and Mathematics objectives meet or exceed those of the English National Curriculum.

 

The International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) is specifically designed for adolescent brains and is ideal for Years 7-9. It aims to help maintain the students’ engagement with learning during a time of immense physical and emotional development while providing a structured and challenging academic platform to prepare the children for the next stage of their learning. English and Mathematics objectives are based on the English National Curriculum.

 

For Years 10 and 11, our curriculum will be built around the Cambridge IGCSE, with its strong foundation of core subjects and encouragement of learners to engage with a variety of subjects. It develops skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving and is a great springboard to advanced study, such as for the International Baccalaureate (IB), ‘A’ levels, or other national systems. IGCSE exams at the end of Year 11 provide your child with a set of qualifications that are recognised world-wide.

 

As a school, we value the importance of the creative and performing arts and the role they play in not only positively impacting on academic achievement, but also in developing, amongst other things, self esteem, confidence, collaboration, appreciation and enjoyment.

 

Curriculum areas such as music, PE and Swedish are taught by specialist teachers, even in the primary age ranges.
