  • Setting high expectations from students
  • Frequent monitoring of students’ performance
  • Maintaining safe and orderly school
  • Implemening the school ethos
  • Building a supportive community

Curriculum

All subjects communicated in Arabic (Arabic language, Religion and Arabic Social Studies) use the curriculum of the Ministry of Education of Jordan.

Intensive Arabic

The Arabic intensive programme is offered to any student from Year 7 to Year 9 exhibiting difficulty with Arabic.

New students who have not shown sufficient proficiency in the language during the school's entrance examination and existing students whose end of year result for the last academic year was not sufficiently high (generally lower than D+) will automatically be placed in the intensive Arabic programme.

The purpose of enrolling these students in the intensive Arabic programme is to specifically cater for their individualistic and idiosyncratic needs as they will receive the care and attention they require to progress.

English, Science and Mathematics

Our English-led curriculum prepares Years 7 to 9 students for the upcoming IGCSE and A-level studies.
Up to Year 9 (the end of Key Stage 3) coursebooks and resources are Cambridge University Press. These books are designed to follow the Cambridge Checkpoint Syllabus, schemes of work and mark schemes.
