for children from 2 to 6
Our children our future.
In the secondary school, our students become confident, independent and responsible learners who grow into globally thinking young adults that are able to adapt and succeed in the fast changing world.
Our secondary for pupils in Year 7- Year 9, ages 11-14, provides a broad and balanced curriculum of subjects, with emphasis on skill development and understanding. Our secondary pupils gain a strong foundation that they can then build on for high school and later life.
Through a variety of lessons, individual attitude of enthusiastic teachers and exciting curriculum, pupils realize their academic potential while developing social and emotional skills and values for their future lives beyond the walls of our school.
We support pupils in their life and study so they can gradually manage higher learning expectations of the secondary programme. At this stage with our caring support we help children as they begin to think about their future study careers.
Learning must make sense. We put emphasis on pupils learning in context, understanding why the given topic is important and how they can use it in practice. Pupils memorising information is not the most important to us, whereas having a real understanding of what they are learning and how to apply it, is key.
Our programme promotes an enquiry-based approach to learning by developing thinking skills and encouraging intellectual engagement.
We believe that this rich well-structured international curriculum plays a significant role in developing inquisitive, responsible, independent and creative learners.
On top of our exciting and engaging curriculum, life at ISO comes with a whole lot more – from a real focus on personal development through the SEAL programme to whole-school house events and much more.
We support children and the increasingly challenging curriculum through various programmes. We believe that as a result of this approach, they will enjoy going to school every morning.
A particular favourite in our school is our IPC programme.
Jolly Phonics is an engaging way to teach children pre -reading and pre -writing skills using phonics. Phonics is the teaching of the sounds that letters make, rather than the names of letters that are taught in the alphabet, because it is the sounds that are useful for reading and writing, not the names. These sounds are taught in a systematic way, alongside all of the skills needed for being a fluent reader and writer in future. Jolly Phonics also teaches all of this in a fun and engaging way, through characters, stories, actions, songs and games! To read more about Jolly Phonics, clickhere.
ORT is a reading scheme which has been developed to help children learn to read from the age of 4. This scheme is used by a vast majority of preschools and schools in the UK and around the world.ORT includes popular characters and illustrations such as Biff, Chip and Kipper, Floppy, Wordless Stories and easy regular word books to capture children’s imagination and interest and help them develop their pre reading skills. It is an excellent way to practise the skills learned through the Jolly Phonics Programme..
Cambridge Primary ENGLISH promotes an enquiry-based approach, developing learners’ confidence, creativity and intellectual engagement. Learners develop English skills that they can apply to a range of different purposes and audiences in everyday situations and in study.
We teach English as a first language. Pupils that are only starting to learn English or need some additional support are allocated to our intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) programme.More about Cambridge Primary English
Cambridge Primary MATHEMATICS focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject. Knowing your times tables facts without practical application and without developing alongside some good problem solving skills is not that helpful - in our school, we make sure our pupils know why they are learning it and how they can use the specific knowledge and skill.More about Cambridge Primary Maths
