In these years of school, students lay a solid foundation for learning that they will use for the rest of their lives. The National Curriculum for England has a very structured flow of learning that challenges and assesses students to ensure development in key academic areas is being met. Integration of STEAM, coding into the curriculum, and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is an intrinsic feature of learning across the school from Years 1 to 6.

Achieving full potential
Within the Primary School, academics is integrated with opportunities to enable children to achieve their full potential and develop skills of reasoning, problem-solving and creative thinking. Learning ensures that all of our students are enthused by what they are learning, and our teachers are passionate about what they are teaching. Students pursue academic and non-academic prospects through various activities. Socially preferred behaviour patterns are inculcated through a focus on etiquette and values that will lay the foundation for students’ social interaction and development.
Key stage 2 students are provided with the opportunities to develop their leadership skills by sharing class and school responsibilities that nurture organisational skills, accountability and team spirit.
The Primary School is the stage of enhanced learning, where the students are constantly evolving and growing, intellectually and emotionally.
Students in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 will prepare for the UAE International Benchmark assessments as prescribed by the KHDA.
