Unshackled from any national curriculum, international schools can offer a bespoke curriculum. They have the freedom to blend the best aspects of curricula such as that of the US, the UK or India – or programmes including the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) – with other global educational practices in wellbeing, academia and the arts.
They also bring together a team of international staff who have worked in a wide range of different education systems, which can add to the diversity and strength of a school’s learning environment. It’s one of the huge advantages of sending your child to an international school; teachers are not restricted to a single national curriculum, and an education can combine the strengths of Western and Eastern pedagogy.
