The Curriculum

All island schools are embracing the new Bailiwick curriculum. The learning opportunities this new curriculum embraces are exciting, refreshing and highly fit for a 21st century education.


There are 8 areas of learning specifying learning skills from ages 5 to 14. These areas of learning encompass a range of subjects for instance ‘Understanding the arts’ includes visual arts, music, dance and drama. Underpinning these areas of learning are the 3 core skills of communication, numeracy and digital competency.

Other learning attributes are also specified such as the learning how to learn skills; e.g. resilience, reflection and creativity. We are looking forward to developing our curriculum and believe that it will enhance and invigorate the learning opportunities we give to our children.!
