Our English curriculum

We believe every student can learn and should be able to do so in a pressure-free and pleasant environment. English is one of the languages that helps us to explore the world. Therefore, we have developed our school-based curriculum to adapt to the needs of our students. We have adopted “Reading across the Curriculum” (RaC) into our core curriculum. Our reader materials, exploring many different academic disciplines, are used to broaden our students’ horizons. Various teaching strategies and activities are employed in the lessons to make the learning experience more authentic and to cater for learner differences. We hope that our students can successfully learn and grow in our school.
