Pre & Primary School

Style of Teaching & Learning

Throughout their time in pre & primary school, students should expect the following:

  • Find learning fun and enjoyable and look forward to coming to school with enthusiasm and a clear sense of purpose. They will be academically ambitious, enjoy the intellectual satisfaction of success and take pride in their achievements, and have high standards of behavior and discipline.
  • Experience a variety of traditional and modern learning methods including inquiry-based education and use of technology in the classroom. They also receive a balanced 21st-century education and broaden their range of skills to complement academic subjects with art, music, sport, and drama.
  • Study a rigorous, truly international curriculum that is broad and challenging, aimed at stimulating critical thinking, analytical thought, and an enjoyment of learning. Students have regular assessments and feedback so they can have their effort, progress, and achievements valued and recognized and so build confidence and also receive the support they need to constantly improve in weaker areas.
  • Develop a truly international outlook and be global citizens by appreciating issues that are of global concern. This also means developing their leadership skills, interpersonal & communication skills, and spirit of adventure and teamwork.
All of this helps us develop the Cambridge Learner Attributes in each and every child

In pre-school, a modified version of the Early Years Foundation Stage is used. There is plenty of opportunity for learning through play and discovery but also a structured programme which includes language activities to promote literacy, number activities to promote numeracy as well as science, library, PE, swimming and art.

In primary school, the Cambridge International Primary Curriculum, outlined here is followed in English, Maths and Science. Detailed schemes of work, assessment material and other resources are available to teaching staff on the Teachers’ Support website.  In class, only teaching materials (textbooks and corresponding workbooks) which have been officially endorsed by Cambridge are used. This helps to ensure that international standards are maintained.

Other subjects use the National Curriculum of England as a guideline. We use resources designed for an international version of this curriculum for ICT, geography & history. Other subjects taught are French, Swahili, PE, swimming and art. In addition, in Key Stage 1, there is a special focus on skills in reading, writing and spelling.

The extra-curricular programme includes field trips and weekly clubs such as karate, swimming, football, netball, drama, debate, song & dance, music, computers, chess etc.
