The British Curriculum is a board and balanced curriculum framework inclusive of all of the major Arts, Science and Humanities subjects. The curriculum’s syllabus is fortified by a systematics and rigorous approach and can be adapted to meet the needs of all students through differentiated teaching and learning activities, whatever their interests or ability.

Children are also offered, and highly encouraged, to take part in extracurricular activities to develop their skills and interests outside of the classroom. Such activities include learning to play an instrument, joining a sports team or picking up an additional language.

A wide range of subjects which include arts, science and humanities are covered in the British Curriculum. Students learn the basics of numeracy and literacy at the foundation stage of the curriculum. At primary level, students are taught the fundamentals of mathematics and English.
