British National Curriculum


At Optimist International School we use the British National Curriculum to teach Language Arts (English), Reading and Mathematics. The British Curriculum (English National Curriculum) is a standardised set of subjects used by thousands of primary (and secondary) schools around the world, offering all children aged 3-16 a standardized curriculum.

The national curriculum is enquiry based, with a focus on problem solving. It aims to build up students’ abilities as learners. Children work both individually and in groups. Sports, music, drama and educational trips among other activities, form an important part  of the curriculum designed to help children learn essential skills, discover their interests and develop the confidence to go after new challenges. When possible we integrate the goals of this curriculum in our IPC curriculum.
