Foundation Stage 1 and Foundation Stage 2

Play-based Learning: Foundation stage children have the opportunity to learn through a wide variety of teacher and student initiated activities throughout the day that are focused around the concept of Play Based Learning.

Establishing a positive relationship with the school: Their day is designed to provide consistent teacher/student contact to establish a positive relationship with the school and a sense of security with their homeroom teacher. Literacy and Numeracy are amongst the areas of focus as well as PE, Drama, and Personal and Social Development. Arabic lessons are taught by an Arabic teacher.

Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2

A well-structured day to cover the core subjects: KS1 and 2 students follow a structured timetable where the majority of their time is spent with their homeroom teacher. With their teacher, the students will cover the core subjects of the curriculum: English, Maths, Science and Social Studies. Specialist teachers teach Physical Education, Music, Art and Arabic.

Key Stage 3: Year 7, 8 & 9

Students are independent learners: KS3 students develop their independence further by having multiple teachers administering different parts of the curriculum as well as the specialist teachers to teach Physical Education, Music, Art and Arabic.

Key Stage 4: Year 10, 11 & 12

A gateway to university life: KS4 students take a pro-active role in a university-like setup of teaching and learning. Guided by the best subject-specialists, KS4 students choose the courses that will better prepare them for university life.

My children just love the school and enjoy their time there. Keep it up!
