Excellent, international curriculum from preschool to high school.
International School Olomouc is a Cambridge International School and a registered member of International Primary Curriculum. Thus the school curriculum is based on a number of modern, internationally approved and high quality curriculum frameworks developed by world leading educational organizations.
In Preschool we model the curriculum on the International Early Years Curriculum that has been developed to support the early stages of learning experience. We use this programme for children from 1 to 5 years old. It is rigorous and robust in its structure but still offers an effective and easy way to support personalised and individual learning of each child. It also fulfills the requirements of the Czech national framework programme for preschool education.
In primary school we use three main curriculum frameworks to build strong, active and hands-on learning programmes for children from 5 to 11 years old. For the subjects of English, Maths and PE we use the relevant frameworks provided by Cambridge Primary and for all the remaining subjects such as Science, History, Geography, Technology, Art, Music, Computing, Society and International Relations, we use the International Primary Curriculum developed by Fieldworks Education together with educational specialists from the University of Bath.
The lower secondary curriculum is developed based on the Cambridge Secondary 1 frameworks for English, Mathematics and Science. For all other subjects we follow the National Curriculum for England. Both curricula are modern, regularly updated and offer children an excellent content for their next stage of learning.
Pupils in Upper Secondary study towards their IGCSE qualifications, following the Cambridge IGCSE framework. This qualification is internationally accepted and offers a variety of routes for pupils with different abilities and skills including those who are not native speakers. English, Maths and Science are compulsory and pupils choose the rest of their subjects according to their interests and abilities.
We are currently preparing our two-year Advanced programme for pupils that have completed their IGCSE qualifications for school year 2022/2023.
