British Primary School in Dubai
A British Primary School in Dubai renowned for its excellence in education
The curriculum followed in Years 1 to 6 is based on the National Curriculum for England, adapted by our staff to have a global dimension and to be relevant to children living here in the UAE.
The core of the curriculum is set but teachers are empowered to group areas of learning together to create topics that are of interest and of relevance to children in their class.
We also value cross-curricular learning so that children make links between different subjects.
Maintaining students' interest through engaging lessons
- Pupils at The Aquila School are encouraged to be inquisitive, reflective, and analytical. These skills are all critical skills for thinking and learning.
- As a school, we do not use textbooks and worksheets, as these often have pre-determined learning material which can inhibit progress.
This enables lessons to be creative, engaging, relevant, and exciting, whilst all linked to our pupils’ interests.
- Our pupils’ passions and interests are cascaded throughout our curriculum and ensure maximum engagement through activities, project works and through the teachers ensuring lessons are as active, engaging and relevant as possible.
