Primary Curriculum

An enriched and dynamic curriculum

Towards the end of the journey in Reception, we prepare our children for a smooth transition to Lower School, located in the Main School building.

As they progress through Lower School, our youngsters experience significant growth, both academically and socially, while embracing the enriching opportunities Ajyal International School provides.

Our vision is simple yet crucial: we are dedicated to nurturing the academic, personal, social, and moral development of every child. In our supportive community and secure learning environment, our children confidently explore new challenges to unlock their full potential, fostering a lifelong love of learning.

A Fulfilling curriculum

Primary School offers a broad, balanced, and immersive curriculum that presents plentiful opportunities, whilst recognising the importance of tailoring teaching and learning techniques to each child's particular requirements. With small class sizes and experienced teaching assistants, our dedicated team works alongside class teachers to help every child reach their full potential. We aim to amplify your child's strengths, support areas of difficulty, and encourage them to continually strive for success.

The core subjects of English, Maths and Science form the foundation, while creativity and the arts play a vital role in our children's education. Specialist subject teachers visit weekly for French, ICT and Spanish, complementing the class teacher's instruction. Robotics, Art, Music, and PE are taught by specialist teachers in designated learning facilities, allowing children to explore their interests and uncover their hidden talents.

Music with Lower School

Our exceptional Music Department at Ajyal offers every child the chance to develop a love of music through formal class lessons, weekly singing sessions, and performance opportunities.

From Year 1, children learn instruments such as the recorder, drums, and keyboard, and from Year 2, they can join our Junior Choir. In Year 3, children can choose to pursue a specific musical instrument as an extra-curricular activity.

Our exciting Lower School musical production at the end of the Summer Term showcases the singing, dancing and acting talents of every child in Years 2 to 6

``A school that cares about the wellbeing of children and provides them with all the tools they need to learn and progress. ``

Co-Curricular opportunities

As our children advance through primary School, they have the opportunity to engage in our diverse range of co-curricular activities. Starting from Year 1, they can explore a variety of fun, exciting, and captivating pursuits after school. These include gymnastics, ballet, cooking club, and a wide array of sports clubs such as netball, football, tennis.

Upon reaching Year 3, our children not only continue with our enriching co-curricular program but also participate in competitive sporting activities. They can further develop their musical interests through Music tuition and, if they wish to showcase their talent, audition for our esteemed Junior Choir.


Our facilities truly engage and inspire

During the week, your child's learning is enriched through our onsite facilities, ensuring they have fun both in and outside the classrooms.

From PE and Games lessons in the AJIS Arena and music lessons in our Music studio, to stimulating and creative lessons in our all-weather outdoor areas, your child can stretch their body and mind to get most from all Ajyal has to offer.

Parent Involvement

Our parents are an integral part of Team Ajyal International School, along with our children and staff, and we warmly welcome them into our school to celebrate with us.

Parents are invited to parents’ evenings, parent workshops, National Day celebrations, music concerts, Ajyal Talent shows and Speech Day. In addition to these events, our wonderful Parents’ council hosts various activities throughout the year, including the highly popular themed International Day.

On a more informal level, parents can chat to staff at drop off and pick up times or arrange a meeting at another time to discuss any concerns.
