The Early Years Foundation Stage (FS 1 and FS 2)
The Early Years Foundation programme is for children aged four to five years of age. We create an environment that promotes a happy and confident start to school life. Throughout the year, children experience an exciting curriculum, both indoors and outdoors, designed to meet the needs of young children. Through fun, creative and play-based curriculum, each child is challenged to reach his/her individual potential.
The Early Years curriculum comprises of seven areas of learning.
3 Prime areas:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Social and emotional development
4 Specific areas:

Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and Year 2)
The Key Stage 1 programme is based on the National Curriculum for England. Children are encouraged to become independent; capable and competent learners through strong transition programs with FS2. Children in Year 1 experience a longer day than in FS, providing more opportunities to develop their personalities, natural abilities and talents.
Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to Year 6)
Students in this programme follow Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum for England, which continues to build on the foundations that are established in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.
Ongoing assessment ensures that each student’s progress and development are continuous and meet predetermined standards. We encourage students to think independently, use their initiative and to participate in a meaningful and active manner in their learning process.
By the end of Year 6, we expect our students to have experienced a well-rounded education and have developed a strong character, articulate expression, confidence, and be well- prepared for their secondary education. The students write Primary checkpoint examination conducted by Cambridge International Examinations at the end of year 6.
