We follow the UK National Curriculum and are accredited by the British Schools Oversees and British Schools of the Middle East. Academic learning is highly valued here at SIA and we also know the importance of a broad and balanced education. We recognised the importance of understanding and celebrating all the talents and abilities of each child, enabling each SIA student to grow in confidence, self-responsibility, respect others and achieve their academic goals.
We believe that a happy child is a child who is motivated to learn in a positive environment. Our aim is to ensure that each and every SIA child fulfill their potential and is ready for the next stage in their education.

we aim to develop enquiring minds to gain knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts and skills. Children are encouraged through a variety of situations to develop skills of imaginative, disciplined and systematic enquiry. Through practical activities children can develop the ability to formulate and test hypotheses, and above all to understand the provision of scientific explanation.
Our key learning values are woven throughout our curriculum, curiosity, communication,
reflection, resilience, motivation, creativity and collaboration. Our programme includes specialists teachers in the arts and music and PE and sports, with a wide array of in-school and after-school activities to extend and develop a
child’s interest beyond traditional study areas.
The upper primary staff and children are extremely proud of our section and are always pleased to show current or prospective parents around so that you can see for yourself what we have to offer your children.
As an HPL school we are always looking to use our Values, Attitudes and Attributes (VAAs) and for our learners to understand and utilise the Advanced Cognitive Performance Characteristics (ACPs) across all areas.
