THE FENIX SCHOOL CURRICULUM 

At The Fenix School, we believe that in this ever-changing globalised world, academic skills alone are not enough and that our students need to be equipped with skills to apply knowledge in their everyday life.

 

We also think that there is too much competition, testing, rankings going on in our country and we want to offer an alternative primary school system based on less tests/exams for our children to evolve in a stress-free environment, more FUN, CREATIVITY & PLAY, EXPLORATION but STILL NOT COMPROMIZING ON ACADEMIC LEARNING.

CURRICULUM PRINCIPLES

Our curriculum is based on 10 principles:

 

  1. provide our pupils with a bilingual education (French-English) through storytelling, role play, book club, creative writing...

  2. promote arts and drama as key features to develop communication skills and creativity

  3. cultivate cross-cutting skills

  4. teach within multi-age groups

  5. encourage general knowledge and critical thinking

  6. give our pupils tools to explore and question the world around them

  7. integrate creativity and play in all projects

  8. promote collaboration (quiz, group work, projects, research, role play...) as well as autonomy (individual tasks)

  9. participate in cultural and educational field trips 

  10. include ICT in the learning process (through our online platform)
