Primary school students in the international school follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which is based on the National Curriculum for England, adapted for international students. This dynamic curriculum is being rapidly taken up by international primary schools all over the world. It follows a child-centred, thematic approach with rigorous assessment to ensure not only that each child’s progress is monitored and enhanced but also that children enjoy their schooling.
Students in Key Stage 1 (5 – 7 years old) and Key Stage 2 (7 – 11 years old) study the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Information Communication Technology (ICT) together with Geography, History, Design & Technology, Music, Physical Education, Art & Design and Malay. Chinese or French in introduced in Key Stage 2 as an additional foreign language. External assessment at the end of Key Stage 2 is through the Checkpoint tests administered by Cambridge International Examinations.
A programme of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is provided to all students and, in addition, Agama provision is made available for Muslim students.
