Message from the Preparatory School Headteacher
We are very proud of our high quality teaching and learning that is delivered through a broad and balanced curriculum. In Nursery and Reception we use the Early Years Framework and in Years 1-6 we deliver the English National Curriculum via a cross-curricular framework using themes led by different subject programmes of study namely history, geography and science. This creative approach to the curriculum encourages pupils to follow their own lines of enquiry, stimulate curiosity and promote both personalised learning and international mindedness. We embrace and nurture learning as a focal point and our aim is to instil a love of learning which will remain with the children throughout their lives. We believe all children can succeed in their learning; that they are all entitled to high academic excellence, learning within a culture that recognises each individual’s abilities and which enables all to achieve to their full potential and have a sense of worth.
Above all else, the Pre-Prep and Preparatory School would be considered to be a large school in the UK but here in Saudi it is often described as having a small school feel! This is because the staff and parents work in such close partnership to provide a curriculum that is both relevant and memorable by making time to get to know every child as an individual and to value their all- round achievements and talents beyond the academic. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you might have.
