Our Primary international school students follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which is based on the National Curriculum for England. It is, however, adapted to suit the needs of our international students.

Being well structured, this dynamic curriculum is been adopted by many international primary schools all over the world. The IPC is child-centred coupled with rigorous assessments to monitor each child’s progress. It is geared towards ensuring that all children enjoy their schooling.

At the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 3 – 6), external assessments are conducted through the Checkpoint Tests administered by the Cambridge Assessment International Education.
