Primary

Our teachers come from around the world. Together they bring a variety of ideas and pedagogical knowledge which adds to the cultural diversity of our school. This allows us to keep the curriculum and learning environment in line with international best practice.

We follow the curriculum of the European Schools, focusing more on the core subjects, language of the section and mathematics, which are delivered by the class teacher. The class teacher is also responsible for Discovery of the World, which is comprised of aspects of science, history, geography and technology. Specialised subject teachers teach physical education, music, art and the student’s second language choice (either English, French or German – Language 2 (L2)).
