The schoolâ€™s distinctive curriculum combines the truly global teaching philosophy of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme with the best of British education (the National Curriculum of England & Wales).
From Nursery through to Grade 5 the in-depth, fast-paced, traditional disciplines of the English National Curriculum are taught through the dynamic, inquiry based, trans-disciplinary teaching approach of the I.B.
This distinctive curriculum creates a well-grounded and stimulating learning environment that focuses on the total growth of the developing child, encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs, with strong academic rigour.
The schoolâ€™s teaching encourages international-mindedness and a positive attitude to learning by engaging students in inquiries. By developing their awareness of the process of learning, our students become life long learners. A studentâ€™s experience reflects real life, encouraging learning beyond traditional subjects with meaningful, in-depth inquiries into a wide range of global and localised issues. It emphasizes development of the whole student physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
Currently, Abercorn International School is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophyâ€”a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Abercorn International School believes is important for our students.
