Our Preschool provides a safe and secure introduction to school life. The children (aged 2-6 years) quickly feel welcome and happy. Our curriculum takes them through four dedicated rooms: Pre-Nursery, Nursery, Pre-Reception, and Reception.
Our Primary (Years 1 to 6) starts learners on an exciting educational journey through the Cambridge Pathway. Typically for 5 to 11 year olds, it provides a strong foundation for students at the beginning of their schooling.
The Lower Secondary (Years 7 to 9) is typically for learners aged 11 to 15 years. It helps students prepare for the next step of their education, providing a clear path as they progress through the Cambridge Pathway in an age-appropriate way.
