They currently cater for children aged 3 to 14 but will subsequently cater for students aged 15 to 18.

This dynamic curriculum is being rapidly taken up by international primary schools all over the world. It follows a child-centred, thematic approach with rigorous assessment to ensure not only that each student’s progress is monitored and enhanced but also that children enjoy their schooling. External assessment at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6) is through the Checkpoint tests administered by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
The Secondary School students in the international school follow the programmes of study of National Curriculum for England (UK) appropriately modified for international students. In Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11), students in the international school choose from a range of courses leading to the internationally renowned and recognised qualification, the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations.
