Curriculum

Curriculum

Teaching and learning at GES aims to make the most of children’s natural curiosity to explore and be inquisitive. By nurturing children with our child-centred and individual approach we strive to ensure they leave GES Primary as genuine, creative, thinking individuals with a love and enthusiasm for learning.

We encourage resilience and craftsmanship: taking pride in completing tasks to the best of their ability, being determined, looking for improvement and learning from mistakes. We also empower children to become educated global citizens. We encourage them to be open minded to new ideas and new people, different cultures and different beliefs.

Equipped with all of these transferable skills, a smooth transition to the demands of secondary education is ensured.

Throughout GES we broadly follow the English National Curriculum whilst also taking full advantage of our international and multicultural setting and the wonderful opportunities offered by our location and environment.

Our privileged location in French-speaking Switzerland, but also in the heart of Europe, means we have a special focus on languages. May this be starting with our bilingual Nursery or our preparations at Primary for students to sit early GCSE French exams. Find out more about French and other languages in the respective section below.
