The Cambridge Primary Curriculum is founded on the values of the University of Cambridge and best practice in schools. The curriculum is dedicated to developing learners who are confident, responsible, innovative and engaged. Each curriculum framework for English, Mathematics and Science is designed to engage learners in an active and creative learning journey.
These subject frameworks provide a comprehensive set of progressive learning objectives detailing what the Iearner should know or what they should be able to do in each year of primary education and provide a structure for teaching and learning and a reference against which learners’ ability and understanding can be checked.
These subjects provide the foundation for students to access, process, organise, and present their knowledge, skills and understanding in the thematic International Primary Curriculum (IPC) Units of Learning.
The academic achievement of students are benchmarked according to the following:
- Cambridge Primary Curriculum
- Cambridge Primary Checkpoint
Our specialist subjects complete our future-focused curriculum. A top quality international curriculum encompasses relevant electives to provide students essential knowledge outside of their core subjects. From Arts to Languages, students experience holistic learning at The Grange. Not only do we blend academic importance into our curriculum, we see Arts, Languages and Physical Education important aspects to every child’s learning. We focus heavily on the Learners and the Learning.

At each year level, students are engaged in different thematic Units of Learning designed to appeal to their interests and help them to learn more about the world around them. These Units of Learning help children to see how subjects such as Art, Geography, History, ICT and Computing, Music, PE, Science, Society, Technology, Language and Mathematics are both independent and interdependent. This enables them to see the big picture of their learning, make connections across different subjects, and see topics and issues in the world from multiple perspectives. The ultimate goal is to help students develop a growing sense of international-mindedness.

The three types of Learning Goals are the foundation of the International Primary Curriculum. They define what students are expected to know, what they should be able to do, and the understandings they will develop in their subject, personal and international learning.

At The Grange, we find assessment an integral part of teaching and learning. That is why we closely monitor our student progress using both formative and summative assessment practices.
- Formative assessment – provides teachers with quick feedback that they can use for driving instruction and learning
- Summative assessment – evaluates every student’s learning at the end of an instructional chapter or unit
Both students and teachers are actively involved in these assessments. Also, The Grange ensures that every student’s social and academic progress are valued equally.
- Peer assessments
- Student reflection
- Open-ended tasks
- Performance tasks
- Process-focused tasks
- Parent-Student-Teacher Conference
