A Good School knows your child by Name,
A Great School knows your child by Heart. 

We at First Years Academy are singularly focused on one thing- your child. They bring their passions into the classroom and develop deep, caring relationships that inspire a true love of learning. Our teachers pay close attention to the social, emotional and academic needs of each individual, adapting the curriculum and lessons that fuel the fire more than fill the bucket.

Our Programs


Our Preschool provides a safe and secure introduction to school life. The children (aged 2 to 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 12 year olds, it provides a strong foundation for students at the beginning of their schooling.

Lower Secondary

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.

Cambridge International Curriculum

The Cambridge International Curriculum sets a global standard for education, and is recognized by universities and employers worldwide. The curriculum is flexible, challenging and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach. Cambridge students develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. They also gain the essential skills they need for success at university and in their future careers.

The Cambridge Pathway

The Cambridge Pathway gives students a clear path through education from age 5 to 19. It has four stages: Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Lower Secondary, Cambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced. Cambridge Pathway students have the chance to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to achieve at school, university and beyond.
