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.

Our aim for all children is to empower the young learners to reach their potential and prepare them for future.  We are committed to providing a caring, supportive learning environment where every child is guided and encouraged to become an independent learner, fulfilling their potential in all areas of their learning.

At TWS, we follow the National Curriculum of England and personalize it to provide a broad range of experiences and opportunities in an international context. The main curriculum is further enriched by specialist teaching of Arabic, French, Urdu (from Year 3) ICT, PE, Music, Art, Social Studies, Moral Education and Islamic Education. Children learn through themed topics or project based learning, to apply their Literacy, Numeracy and ICT skills. Children in KS 1 also have access to an impressive range of technology (including iPads), which help to equip, develop and promote skills for lifelong learning.
