  • The Pearson Edexcel iPrimary English curriculum is designed specifically for non-native speakers of English who are studying the majority of their curriculum subjects in English. Taking the best approaches of a first language curriculum and combining them with EAL progression, scaffolding and support, students will be well prepared for further study at iLowerSecondary and on to International GCSEs in either English as a First or English as a Second Language.
  • The Pearson Edexcel iPrimary Mathematics curriculum has been created as an      internationalised, updated version of the latest English National Curriculum (2014).

Providing a strong foundation in mathematics, the curriculum introduces and reinforces concepts that lay the groundwork for lower secondary education and on to International GCSE Mathematics and beyond.

  • With a strong emphasis on developing scientific enquiry skills and content designed to support enquiry-based learning, the Pearson Edexcel iPrimary Science curriculum is based on the latest version of the English National Curriculum (2014), but with the international student in mind.

Pearson Edexcel iPrimary Computing will equip students to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science and information technology and be responsible, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
