PRIMARY


The Primary School teaching programme follows a uniquely devised, broad and balanced curriculum which takes into account the children’s age and background, enhancing the overall student attainment levels.
Most importantly, the whole school programme enriches the children’s learning experiences and provides them with the academic, social, linguistic and technological tools necessary for the modern world.

Academic


The children have specialist teachers for physical education and music. During the year each class also has the opportunity to work on an art project with specialist art teachers. The Italian Curriculum is taught throughout the Primary School to the pupils who opt for the Italian stream. Each pupil’s level of spoken Italian is assessed and “Italian as an Additional Language” teaching is provided for non-native speakers. During the year, the children have the opportunity to go on educational visits, linked to the topics that they are studying. These visits include trips to art galleries, theatres and museums, making the children’s learning experience a broader one.

Key Stages


The two stages are as follows:

  • Key Stage 1 - Years 1 & 2
  • Key Stage 2 - Years 3 to 6

At the end of each Key Stage students are assessed with tests used in British schools. Our students’ results are consistently well above UK national averages.

The school offers the choice between two academic programmes: The British Stream or The Italian Stream. The Primary School holds the Italian status of “Scuola Paritaria”. There is also an optional Religion lesson.
