Primary School

At One World International School, we offer the IB Primary Years Programme underpinned by a rigorous and high quality curriculum. The PYP is a framework designed to inspire young minds and challenge students. It focuses on the holistic growth of the developing child, encompassing their social, physical, emotional and cultural needs. Our unique combination of the PYP, individualised teaching methods and continuous assessment opportunities promote academic excellence for all.

The PYP encourages an integrated or transdisciplinary approach to learning allowing our students to make connections across a variety of subjects through a diverse range of units of inquiry within each academic year. We are committed to providing our students with dynamic and engaging learning opportunities driven by both student-initiated and teacher-initiated inquiry. Our teaching methods build upon individual understandings, knowledge and interests, emphasising how to learn, how to delve deeper and how to develop each student’s unique thinking skills.

Our Primary School strives towards developing internationally-minded students who demonstrate the attributes of the PYP Learner Profile through our school’s shared values. Our students are encouraged to apply all that they have learned, not only in our school community, but in the wider world, demonstrating their self-initiated action, exercising their own initiatives and taking on responsibility as a global citizen. We provide a rich, broad and high quality education for the future preparing our students to be able to study, live and work anywhere in the world.
