At Grace International School, we believe in fostering a love of learning that empowers students to become lifelong learners and future leaders.

We achieve this by providing a rigorous and engaging academic program built upon the internationally recognized English National Curriculum (ENC). The ENC offers a strong foundation for success in higher education and allows our students to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Why the English National Curriculum?

We have chosen the ENC for several key reasons:

Promotes a love of learning:

The English National Curriculum at Grace International School isn’t just about memorizing facts. It’s designed to ignite a lifelong passion for learning. Here’s how:

  • Engaging Activities: We move beyond rote memorisation by incorporating interactive lessons, hands-on projects, and real-world applications. Imagine your child conducting science experiments, participating in group debates, or creating their own stories – these activities spark curiosity and make learning fun.

  • Focus on Inquiry-Based Learning: The ENC encourages students to ask questions, explore different possibilities, and discover knowledge on their own. This fosters critical thinking skills and a sense of ownership over their learning journey.

  • Differentiation: We understand that every child learns differently. The curriculum allows teachers to tailor lessons to cater to diverse learning styles and interests. This ensures all students are challenged and engaged.

  • Celebrating Success: We acknowledge and celebrate student achievements, both big and small. This positive reinforcement builds confidence and motivates students to strive further.

Strong Foundation in Core Subjects:

The curriculum provides a clear structure that ensures a strong foundation in core subjects like science, language, and math. This structure allows teachers to:

  • Build upon Prior Knowledge: Each grade level builds on the skills learned in the previous year, creating a logical progression of knowledge.
  • Develop Essential Skills: Students develop essential skills like critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration through engaging lessons.
  • Prepare for Future Success: The strong foundation provided by the ENC equips students with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in higher education and future careers.

By combining a love of learning with a strong academic foundation, the English National Curriculum prepares your child for success not just in school, but in life.

Prepares students for global success:

In today’s interconnected world, a truly global education is more important than ever. The English National Curriculum (ENC) at Grace International School equips your child with the skills and qualifications recognized by universities worldwide, giving them a significant competitive edge for future academic pursuits. Here’s how:

  • Globally Recognized Standard: The ENC is a rigorous and respected curriculum used in schools across the globe. This international recognition ensures your child’s qualifications are understood and valued by universities worldwide, opening doors to a wider range of educational opportunities.

  • Focus on Transferable Skills: The ENC goes beyond rote memorization. It emphasizes the development of essential transferable skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration. These skills are highly sought after by universities and employers alike, regardless of location.

  • Strong Foundation for International Exams: The ENC curriculum aligns well with internationally recognized exams like IGCSEs and A-Levels. This seamless transition allows your child to excel in these crucial assessments, boosting their university applications.

  • Adaptability and Confidence: The ENC fosters a love of learning and encourages students to become independent thinkers. This equips them with the adaptability and confidence needed to thrive in diverse academic settings, whether they choose to study in their home country or pursue international opportunities.

Ensures a seamless learning journey:

One of the greatest benefits of the English National Curriculum (ENC) at Grace International School is the seamless learning journey it provides for your child. Imagine a smooth, well-constructed staircase – each step builds upon the previous one, leading your child confidently towards academic success. Here’s how the ENC fosters this seamless learning experience:

  • Consistent Framework: The ENC offers a structured and familiar framework throughout a child’s educational journey, from Pre-Nursery all the way to A-Levels. This consistency eliminates confusion and allows students to focus on learning, not adapting to new teaching styles or curriculum changes.

  • Progressive Learning: The curriculum is designed with clear progression in mind. Concepts and skills learned in earlier years are revisited and built upon in subsequent grades. This ensures a deeper understanding and avoids the feeling of starting from scratch every year.

  • Confidence Through Familiarity: As your child progresses through the grades, they encounter familiar themes and concepts presented with increasing complexity. This reinforces understanding and builds confidence in their learning abilities.

  • Smooth Transitions: The curriculum ensures a smooth transition between Pre-Nursery and A-Levels. This eliminates the anxiety and disruption often associated with changing schools or educational systems. Your child can focus on embracing new challenges without the added stress of adjusting to a completely new way of learning.

Benefits for Your Child:

  • Reduced Anxiety: The familiar structure of the ENC reduces anxiety often associated with academic transitions. Your child feels confident and prepared for each new grade level.
  • Deeper Understanding: The progressive nature of the curriculum ensures concepts are truly understood, not just memorized. This leads to a stronger foundation for future learning.
  • Improved Learning Habits: The consistent framework fosters strong learning habits that will benefit your child throughout their academic journey and beyond.
  • Increased Motivation: Feeling confident and prepared allows your child to approach learning with a positive attitude and a thirst for knowledge.

Choosing the English National Curriculum at Grace International School provides your child with a stress-free and well-structured learning environment, allowing them to focus on what truly matters – exploring, discovering, and unlocking their full potential.

Emphasis on Social-Emotional Learning:

In today’s world, academic success is just one piece of the puzzle. At Grace International School, we understand the importance of nurturing the whole child. That’s why the English National Curriculum (ENC) goes beyond traditional subjects, integrating essential Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) programs. These programs are designed to equip your child with the crucial skills they need to thrive in every aspect of life, not just in the classroom.

Here’s how the ENC-integrated SEL programs benefit your child:

  • Building Strong Relationships: Through collaborative activities and social interaction, your child learns empathy, communication skills, and conflict resolution. This allows them to build positive friendships, navigate social dynamics effectively, and develop a sense of belonging.

  • Emotional Intelligence for Everyday Life: The ENC-integrated SEL programs foster emotional intelligence – the ability to understand and manage their own emotions, as well as recognize and respond to the emotions of others. This empowers your child to regulate emotions effectively, deal with stress in a healthy way, and build resilience in the face of challenges.

  • Creating Confident Learners: By fostering self-awareness and a positive self-image, the SEL programs equip your child with the confidence they need to take risks, embrace new challenges, and persevere through setbacks. This confidence translates to a more positive learning experience and a willingness to take ownership of their academic journey.

  • Future-Proofing for Success: The social and emotional skills developed through the ENC-integrated SEL programs are fundamental for future success. They are essential for navigating the complexities of personal and professional relationships, effective collaboration in the workplace, and adapting to an ever-changing world.

Investing in the ENC at Grace International School means investing in your child’s future. It goes beyond academics, fostering well-rounded individuals with the emotional intelligence and social skills necessary to succeed in life.
