Progressive preparation for life in secondary school
Lower Primary - Years 1 & 2 (Ages 5-7)
Learning during this phase progressively builds on the skills developed in the Foundation Stage, with a strong emphasis on play-based active learning, building towards more formal group work in preparation for Upper Primary. Students begin the The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) developing their knowledge, skills and understanding through thematic units. Teachers create engaging learning opportunities so students make connections between subjects and the world around them.
Upper Primary - Years 3 & 6 (Ages 7-11)
Throughout this phase students continue to grow socially and emotionally. They develop their speaking and listening skills through drama, pair and group work as they explore a range of problems, dilemmas and moral issues in all areas of the curriculum. They deepen their understanding of themselves as learners, reflecting on how they learn best and identifying their strengths and weaknesses.
