The Junior School caters to students from year 3 to year 6 (7 to 11 year olds). While the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science follow the UK Cambridge curriculum; other subjects such as History and Geography follow the English National Curriculum with complimentary infusions and components from Ghana , our host nation.
Our Year 6 students write the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Examinations in English, Mathematics and Science in the month of April. The papers are marked externally in the UK and allow the School to benchmark its achievements against other Cambridge Schools around the world. All students receive diagnostic feedback on their individual performance.
Students are taught Mathematics, English, History, Geography and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) by their class teachers. Subject specialists teach Science, French, Music, Art, Physical Education and Information Technology.
The Online Scholastic Reading Scheme has started and encompasses all students who are able to read at their own pace progressing through a variety of diverse texts. The scheme also levels the students and set targets for progression.
The Junior School aims to expose our students to the ‘reality outside the classroom’ . We do this by incorporating field trips and visiting speakers who are experts in their field into the curricular plans.
