International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
Learning with the International Primary Curriculum means that children focus on a combination of academic, personal and international learning that is exciting and challenging. The aim of the IPC is to help every child enjoy the learning of a wide range of subjects and to develop an enquiring mind and the personal attributes that will help throughout teenage and adult years.
Young people are encouraged to develop a sense of their own nationality and culture and at the same time develop a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others. Through the IPC approach to learning, children develop the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to confidently face the world of tomorrow.
