The aim of our Primary School is to balance the acquisition of essential knowledge and skills with the cultivation of the spirit of creativity and curiosity. In order to attain this balance, students experience a well-rounded curriculum that promotes inquiry, critical thinking, communication, open-mindedness, and reflection. Pupils at this stage are encouraged to be independent thinkers and gain responsibility for their actions and choices.
This stage consists of three core subjects Mathematics, English, and Science together with the foundation subjects of Computing, Geography, History, Design & Technology, Art, Drama, Modern Foreign Language, Music, and Physical Education. In addition to these subjects, we also teach mother-tongue languages (Romanian, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, and Turkish).
Key Stage 2 is made up of the same core and foundation subjects covered in Key Stage 1. During the latter part of Key Stage 2, subject teaching becomes more defined especially in the core subjects of English, Maths, and Science. As students enter Year 6, they are prepared for the subject-oriented approach of the Secondary School and are expected to become more independent in planning and investing in their studies.
Through core and foundation subjects, students receive a fully curated education that creates a passion for learning, builds a strong general knowledge base, and provides an opportunity for pupils to attain a set of skills that will carry them through their educational journeys and eventually into being productive citizens in their communities.
A school day runs from 08:15 to 15:00.
