academic structure

We are accredited by the Cambridge Assessment International Education and registered with the National Schools Inspectorate Authority (NaSIA). Our grading and class structure follows the Cambridge primary and secondary education system. The school is structured into Early Years Foundation Stage, Primary Stage, Lower Secondary Stage and Senior Secondary Stage. We use 1st September to determine the entry age for sorting students into their respective class. Each class progresses to the next grade at the beginning of every academic year (September). Classes are of mixed-ability and learning activities are differentiated to address individual needs

Early Years Foundation Stage
