The Curriculum


The curriculum for Year 1 through Year 8 is largely based upon the British National Curriculum with suitable modifications and is tailored to suit the local linguistic and cultural traditions. It lays the foundation for students wishing to pursue IGCSE, AS and A levels through Edexcel. Text books (no prescribed syllabus) will be used to support learning but will not be the only basis for lessons. Children will be encouraged to learn from a wide variety of sources including discussions, hands-on experimental projects, investigation and through carefully chosen articles, reference books, audio, video, films and the Internet. Students are encouraged to develop their thinking and creative skills. The syllabus as prescribed by Edexcel is followed for IGCSE, AS and A levels.


The literacy strategy will be followed with emphasis on exposing children to a wide variety of genres of literature from many cultures. Children will be encouraged to read widely and write creatively and purposely using wide vocabulary, good grammar and spelling.


The numeracy strategy will be followed enabling children, to develop mathematical skills at their own pace and level. There is an emphasis on mental maths, investigation and developing problem solving skills.


The science curriculum covers four main areas: living things, materials, forces and motion. All these will be covered during the primary curriculum (Year 1 through Year 5), with appropriate practical experimentation and investigation.

History and Geography

History will focus on ancient civilizations, the Tudors and the Victorians, and major world events. Local history and Indian history elements will be added and research skills will be developed. Geography will be taught through topics and project work which will be linked where possible to practical experiences.

Religious Education

The main world religions will be studied to develop understanding and empathy of their faiths and traditions. All main festivals will be celebrated and acknowledged as rich parts of our global culture.


Drawing, painting, craft, music and drama will be taught independently, as well as being imparted across the curriculum. Children will be exposed to many styles of art and music and given opportunity to experiment and develop their own styles, as well as learn to appreciate art.

Technology will be used across the curriculum and use of computers and the Internet is an acknowledged part of learning.

Physical Education (P.E)

Two sessions of PE will be held each week. One will focus on yoga/dance or movement and the other will be on ball skills and gamesmanship. Matches will be arranged where appropriate. Students will be encouraged to play in the afternoon to ensure that they maintain a strong, robust and healthy body.

Curricular Specialty

Student strength in each class will be a maximum of 24 to ensure personal care and attention.

Daily Test

The students will be assessed for their level and style of learning through exercises and discussions on each concept taught on the previous day. This helps the teacher in getting regular feedback and student getting practice of answering and solving problems.

Fast and Not so fast learners

We recognize and admit that there are individual differences among students. Some learn faster while some take little more time to grasp a concept or proposition. We shall endeavor not to slow down the fast learner by encouraging him/her to learn at their normal speed, while at the same time the not-so-fast learners will be paid additional attention and care to enhance his/her learning skills and understanding levels.
