Our primary school section cover Grades 1-6, offering the Chinese National Curriculum integrated with international teaching methodology and content.
Pupils benefit from an integrated curriculum delivered by teaching teams of Chinese and international teachers. Our rigorous curriculum has been designed to meet the needs of each individual by ensuring a breadth of educational experience and academic depth that prepares them for progression through the school. It will encourage students to explore, discover and excel, while learning fundamental concepts that lead to academic success for the years to come.
In Grades 1-5, the curriculum consists of Chinese, English, mathematics, basic science, music, art, moral and ethical education and physical education. In addition, pupils study a school-designed humanities programme of practical activities that take place within the school campus. English instruction is used throughout to encourage bilingualism as pupils progress through the school.
Classes are shared between a Chinese and an English speaker, with Chinese-speaking assistants supporting pupils in language learning. This approach creates a genuinely bilingual learning environment. An international teacher teaches English, mathematics and science (with some co-teaching) while a Chinese teacher teaches Chinese and humanities subjects, and shares some of the mathematics teaching.
Project-based learning supports independent and cooperative learning, while there is emphasis on exploration, investigation and creative thinking.
