Our Elementary department encompasses grades 1 to 5 and adopts the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum, with a clear process of learning and specific learning goals for every subject. It also develops international mindedness and encourages personal learning. It is for children aged 5 - 11 years old and is used by over 730 schools in 92 countries worldwide.
The International Primary Curriculum is an enquiry-based programme that facilitates cross-curricular, theme-based units of study and encourages students to develop their own lines of investigation and a sense of responsibility for their own learning. It's clear scaffolding of rigorous learning goals not only ensures that teachers expose their students to the best possible age-appropriate, exciting and significant learning but also provides reliable developmental benchmarks for the assessment of that learning.
The beauty of the International Primary Curriculum is its flexibility. Irrespective of a school’s location or its resources, the origin of its students or teachers, the IPC accommodates a high degree of student and teacher autonomy thus supporting a safe, happy and challenging learning environment across the grades.
