Curriculum & approach

We have created and refined our own five-year curriculum which embraces the development of “the whole child”, instils an enthusiasm for learning and establishes life skills and strong foundations for our pupils’ success in more formal educational environments from Year 3 and beyond.

It not only adheres to the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum but also incorporates valuable aspects from a number of long-standing and effective international programmes.

Of course, our curriculum also builds on our substantial expertise and experience gained from years of focusing solely on teaching this age range. Its underpinning pillars are playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically – and having fun!
