Level/ Class

FOUNDATION STAGE
The early years of education are crucial in every childs life. At Harrow International early years refers to children in Kindergarten 1 and Kindergarten 2, that is pupils ranging between 3 and 5 years. These young learners receive an integrated initial education preparing them for Key Stage 1 of the curriculum. Children are provided with the opportunity to play, form relationships and learn about themselves and others in a safe environment where the individual feels secure and valued. Specific activities are used to promote self esteem and confidence and to help pupils to develop respect for others. Circle Time activities are incorporated into weekly planning and the Golden Rules are continually reinforced in every Kindergarten class. Classroom teachers act as positive role models for their charges, providing support at all times.

KINDERGARTEN AT THE MAIN CAMPUS
The Kindergarten at the Don Muang campus is an integral part of our Primary School, which also shares the campus with the Secondary School. Each have their own dedicated spaces, teachers and resources. With shared use of specialist music and physical education resources and teaching staff.

THE EARLY YEARS AT THE SUKHUMVIT CENTRE
The inner city Early Years Centre is located at the heart of Bangkok. With classes ranging from Kindergarten 1 to Year 1, the campus has its own specialist facilities but maintains regular contact with the Don Muang campus. This enables staff to share ideas and resources and gives pupils access to the considerable resources of the main campus. Pupils can move from the Sukhumvit site to the Don Muang site at the end of Year 2 or earlier, if circumstances and place availability permit.


PRIMARY SCHOOL
The curriculum of the Primary School is structured, balanced and covers the core subjects of the national curriculum of England and Wales. The cultural diversity of pupils is reflected in lesson planning.

Ensuring that children are both literate and numerate lies at the heart of The Harrow Primary educational policy. Children who are confident in these areas from an early age will gain the greatest benefit and enjoyment from the whole curriculum throughout their school lives and as they develop into adults. Literacy, numeracy, science and technology are central but not emphasised to the exclusion of creative work, physical development and social interaction.

Continuity is achieved by whole-phase planning so that the work of each year group builds upon and extends previous experience. Breadth comes from a practical, topic-based approach that stimulates pupils interest and involvement in the world around them. Music, Art, Physical Education and Drama all provide important curriculum balance. In the later years of the Primary phase, specialist teaching in Mathematics, Modern Languages and Information Technology bring further depth to childrens learning.

SECONDARY SCHOOL
Through the Secondary School curriculum, which leads to qualifications in IGCSE and A Levels, pupils are equipped with the knowledge and life skills needed to succeed in the modern world. When students leave Harrow International they will become a new generation of leaders, prepared and ready to contribute to the diverse societies in which they live and work.
