Early Years and Primary
The Primary school adopts the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) at Key Stage 1 and 2 (Early Years and Primary). This is taught in English and is based on the latest approaches in teaching and learning. It follows a child-centred thematic approach but with rigorous assessment, ensuring that each child not only enjoys his/her schooling but also attains the highest possible standard.
The curriculum aims to achieve high standards in English literacy, Mathematics, Science and Humanities whilst also providing young children with the opportunity to develop skills in the arts and technology. External assessment at the end of Primary education is administered by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) through the Checkpoint tests.

External assessment at the end of Key Stage 3 is through the Checkpoint tests administered by CIE.
