Primary


The Primary Phase at Knowledge Gate International School is a small and welcoming space, providing a happy, vibrant place of learning.



Our teachers work hard to build strong relationships with families based on frequent, open and honest communication to foster a real community of learning. Our aim and passion is to give every child that comes through our doors an education they will enjoy. One that prepares them for academic success and happiness in the future.

Our primary school children are given a head start in the curriculum through our unique bilingual (English-Arabic) teaching approach.  Curriculum content is based on the Cambridge International Curriculum (mapped against the National Curriculum for England). Our students follow the Ministry of Education curriculum for Arabic, Social Studies and Islamic Studies.

A learning enquiry approach to teaching encourages students to explore a variety of perspectives around a topic.
 

This stimulates their curiosity and encourages them to devise their own questions and research areas, which results in a greater depth of understanding. Collaboration is a key feature of learning and students are provided with a range of well-planned opportunities to work together and share ideas. We are passionate about reading and use a variety of different strategies to ensure that students develop their confidence, fluency and enthusiasm including daily phonics, guided reading in small groups, whole class reading of quality texts, and learning sessions in the school Library.

The curriculum is well-rounded so all our students receive a full and varied education that they deserve and enjoy.

Our Knowledge Gate International School Primary students benefit from being taught by subject specialist teachers as well as their class teacher from the age of four and have access to an amazing variety of Enrichment activities and clubs.

With a programme filled with a wide variety of music, dance, drama and sporting activities, every child has the chance to find their special talents and excel. Primary students at Knowledge Gate International School also have full access to the wide range of specialist facilities, often found only in Secondary Schools. These include specialist performing arts spaces, a well-stocked library, science laboratories, sports courts and a swimming pool.
