We believe each boy and girl has the potential for excellence.
Therefore, at The Fenix School, we have adopted a broad and progressive curriculum where ALL subjects are valued and taught as from Grade1. Each following year, it is planned that one ‘discovery’ subject should be offered to the pupils (such as Spanish/ German, Digital Literacy/Computer Sciences, Design and Technology/Home Economics).
Some subjects (such as science) could even be taught more intensively.
Our curriculum will equip our pupils with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas.

Our main objective is to nurture the general knowledge and personal development of all children through our innovative curriculum and teaching methods.
Our classes are so airy, light and colourful as to make our 30-minute lessons captivating and tailored to the needs of 21st century learners. We are dedicated to respecting and fostering individuality as well as the pursuit of excellence. Our pupils pursue a bilingual education thanks to a host of activities that make learning a joyful journey towards greater open-mindedness and acceptance.
Language learning, sports, artistic projects and practical workshops help each individual rejoice in their varied abilities.
Through CAS (Creativity, Action and Skills), our pupils can reinvest the knowledge and skills learnt in the different subjects we offer at The Fenix School.
We design pedagogical practices that facilitate positivity within the classroom. One of the best examples is the chart ‘a vos plumes’ that we have designed to encourage pupils to know their strengths and help them overcome their weaknesses. This tool is 100% Fenixian but has been inspired by the Montessori Method.
ADMISSIONS IN GRADE 1 FOR JANUARY 2021 ARE NOW OPEN.
We have 10 seats available.
