The curriculum for the children in Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage Two (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) is based on the National Curriculum for England.
The curriculum includes the following subject areas: Maths, English, Science, Information Technology, History, Geography, Design Technology, Art, Physical Education, Music, as well as Personal, Social and Health Education. Children also learn Thai language and French.
There is an emphasis on developing the key skills that children need to be able to become confident life-long learners. Children are taught the specific skills of each of the subject areas within a broad, integrated and meaningful context.
Where appropriate the curriculum is taught through themes to ensure that learning is relevant. Children love to become involved in topics and this leads to them carrying out independent research. The topics are planned carefully so that they are appropriate for our children in our international setting and enable skills to be taught within a rich learning environment.
We have high expectations for our children and carry out regular assessments to ensure that they are making good progress. These assessments allow us to refine our teaching and learning to make sure that the individual needs of all our children are being met. English standardised teacher assessments are utilised so that attainment can be compared to children in the UK. These show us that children at St Andrews, Sathorn match, and in many cases, exceed the attainment of children in England in both state and independent schools.
