Our school caters for children from 9 months to 5 years and we teach the English National Curriculum which has been modified to take account that we are based in the heart of one of the capital cities of West Africa. We teach the Early Years Foundation Programme from the ages of 9 months to 4 years and the English National Curriculum for children aged 4 to 11. The Core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science are taught using the National Curriculum. The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is used to teach the Foundation subjects such as History, Geography, Design and Technology throughout a thematic approach towards the curriculum.
What the Parents say…
Parents tell us that their children are happy and enjoy coming to school; they are challenged academically and that our children are well behaved, polite and friendly.
Our teaching staff are professional, well-qualified and genuinely care about the needs of the pupil. The teachers assess children regularly and supportive measures are put in place to ensure that no child is left behind. Parents are kept informed of pupil progress through regular parent teacher meetings. We have an excellent pupil-teacher ratio in all classes to allow your child to reach their full potential.
Homework is set regularly and children are expected to improve and reflect on their learning at all times. A rich and diverse extra- curricular program is offered every day to encourage to become well-rounded and to develop healthy life-long interests.
Children may be enrolled at any time during the academic year. The admission staff will assist you with the enrollment process and individual interviews are used to ensure that your child is placed in the most appropriate class to ensure a smooth transition into our friendly community.
A website never tells you everything about a school and as parents you need to select carefully before enrolling your child. You are welcome to visit our school as we will not only be glad to show you around but also to tell you all you need to know to help you determine what your child may need at this time. Our mission is to develop and nurture your child to enable them to become life-long learners who exceed your expectations and their own.
We hope to see you soon.
