Primary School (Reception - Year 6)

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is a framework guided by six interdisciplinary themes of global significance. Students deepen their learning by developing their conceptual understandings, strengthening their knowledge and skills across and beyond subject areas.

Themes are explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas:

  • Languages
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Arts (Music, Dance & Visual)
  • Personal, Social and Physical Education

The school year is divided into six units that follow the transdisciplinary themes of the PYP. All six subject areas are integrated into each Unit of Inquiry.

The six transdisciplinary themes of the PYP are:

  1. Who we are
  2. Where are we in place and time
  3. How we express ourselves
  4. How the world works
  5. How we organize ourselves
  6. Sharing the planet

 

Secondary School (Year 7-13)

For our students for Y7- Y 11 we provide a framework of learning which encourages students to establish practical connections between their studies and the real world. The framework encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers.

We offer the Diploma Programme (DP) (Year 12 -13) which is aimed at preparing students for success at university and life beyond and has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities. The curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay. The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. Students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service.
