Kindergarten and Primary students learn using English /Arabic joint language instruction, combining an engaging programme of play and hands-on experiences that nurture within each student the skills to learn by enquiry. The curriculum for both is designed using the National Curriculum of England.
In Secondary, the National Curriculum of England is followed for Key Stage 3 (Grades 6 – 8) whilst Grades 9 & 10 students study according to the curriculums prescribed by the Edexcel Exam Board for IGCSE culminating in externally set exams at the end of grade 10. For our Grade 11 & 12 students, we provide the opportunity to either follow the Edexcel GCE syllabuses for AS followed by a graduation to A2 in grade 12; or the Omani Bilingual GED (General Education Diploma) which is formally examined at the end of Grade 12.
Our facilities include 5 science laboratories, swimming pool, canteen, Library/electronic information centre, ICT rooms, ‘zero’ & ‘thin’ client workstations in all classrooms and interactive white boards in all classrooms.
