The core subjects of Maths and Literacy are taught using guidelines set out in the English National Curriculum and linked with the IPC. The IPC is a cross-curricular, rigorous teaching program that incorporates science, history, geography, information communication technology, art and design technology into thematic units. Music and physical education are integrated throughout the program.
Children spend three to six weeks on units of work which are based around interdisciplinary themes, contemporary in nature, and of real interest to children so they are both enthusiastic participants and are engaged in their learning. This extended period of study allows students to approach topics from multiple perspectives and to make meaningful connections between what they learn in the subjects studied.
Focusing on three standards – academic, personal development and international mindedness – the IPC provides a creative and innovative curriculum that prepares children, wherever they may live in the future, for the world of tomorrow by embedding internationalism into every IPC unit to ensure our children grow up with a very clear global understanding.
