Primary School

The aim of the Primary curriculum at BST is to offer pupils a strong academic foundation and a diverse learning experience that allows them to excel in those areas where they have special interest or ability.

The programme is based on the English National Curriculum (ENC) and has been enriched and adapted to our context. We aim for a high standard of attainment and many pupils will be working at a level that goes beyond the objectives of the ENC.

While core subjects such as English, Maths and Computing form a central part of the curriculum, our Integrated Curriculum for pupils in Years 1-4 offers a broad range of subjects including Science, Geography, Art and Design and History. In Years 5 and 6, we move towards a more clearly defined subject orientated timetable with access to subject specialist teachers in preparation for Secondary School. As an international school, we place great importance on the learning of a second language and provide opportunities for pupils to acquire a high level of fluency. 

We are committed to ensuring our young pupils experience a wide range of disciplines. Everyone is required to play in a sports team, learn a musical instrument, take part in a performance and join in one of the school’s various outreach programmes. A range of other optional activities and educational trips complete the programme.
