Ages 3-5

Children follow the English Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, modified for our local context. The philosophy is one of learning through play to make sure the children are ready for the social, emotional and intellectual journey ahead. When appropriate they begin a carefully structured phonics programme to start them off as skilled readers and writers.

The English National Curriculum supplements the Cambridge approach and students take the Cambridge Checkpoint exams in Year 6.

As they start in the Secondary School students are ready to have specialist teachers for all subjects. They continue to have a broad and balanced curriculum and sit Cambridge Checkpoint exams in Year 9.

Ages 14-16

All students study for IGCSE in Maths, the science subjects and English (First or Second Language). Each student’s curriculum is tailored to meet his or her needs after a process of guidance. They choose a pathway that is right for them. This can include IGCSEs in a wide range of subjects.

Ages 16-18

Our core provision is the English Advanced Level programme which also leads to graduation with a United States high school diploma but we remain flexible, committed to meeting individual needs.
