The Upper Primary provides a culturally rich and intellectually stimulating environment for our diverse body of students. Our students learn through exploration, discussion and presentation, through research and investigation. In the Upper Primary, we currently have three classes for every year group. Each class consists of approximately 20 students: each child’s needs are catered for. Curricular subjects studied are English, Maths, Social Studies, Science, French, Kiswahili (with separate classes for speakers and non-speakers), Art, Music, Physical Education and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education).
In Years 3 and 4 students enjoy the pastoral care of a home class teacher who teaches the English, Maths, Social Studies and PSHE, whilst specialist teachers cover all other subjects. In Years 5 and 6 the students benefit from the expertise of specialist teachers in all subjects. This set-up also works towards preparing our senior students for life in Secondary School. Three times a week, the students take part in clubs where they have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of arts and crafts, musical activities including private musical instrument lessons, and sports, both competitive and non-competitive.
The students very much have a voice in the school and are able to share their opinions and shape the daily life of the school through the representative School Council. Our Year 6 prefects learn the importance of responsibility taking on several duties during throughout the school day. In the Upper Primary all students are encouraged and supported to become responsible, independent and motivated citizens.
