National Curriculum for England (NCfE)
Learning in our Primary stage goes beyond just memorising facts and figures. Our experiential learning allows children to develop deeper understanding of key concepts.
How we follow the best practices of NCfE learning
Our curriculum is based on the framework of the National Curriculum for England (NCfE) which provides a rigorous education from Foundation Stage up to the end of Sixth form. Students in each age cohort will study the same subjects regardless of their background, nationality or level of academic attainment.
An International Outlook
The approach to ensuring that students gain a truly international outlook is consistent with our vision and mission. The focus is on:
Celebrating the diverse nationalities who live locally
Assemblies that point students to aspects of local life
Curriculum extras that broaden students’ global knowledge and experience
Cross-curricular challenges each term
Honouring the local and regional culture, through assembly, playing the National Anthem, making cultural visits and inviting speakers
Studying the role of the United Nations in promoting peace and international understanding
Partnering schools on other continents, with online exchanges between students
Studying the way that communications media - including social media - work in different countries
