Junior School is an important phase of a child’s education. During these formative years, students are encouraged to gain a broader understanding of the world and increase their ability to learn and solve problems – valuable aptitudes that become lifelong skills.
At Mutiara International Grammar School, the National Curriculum for England is central to all areas of study. Core subjects taught are English, Mathematics and Science in addition to foundation subjects: humanities, arts, technology and physical education. Other subjects include local and foreign languages, social studies and religious studies.
Assessments and coursework are carried out by the School throughout the year and internal written examinations are conducted twice each year. Written reports are prepared after the written examinations and parents will be invited to the School for a discussion on their child’s progress.
A formal examination, the Standard Attainment Tests (SATs), takes place in Year 6. Papers are externally marked to provide a benchmark against which we can determine individual student progress and our attainment as a School.
To provide students with opportunities outside the classroom, learning is complemented by a diverse range of activities to discover their interests and talents. Cross-curricular approaches, educational trips, reading programmes and classroom activities are linked with everyday lessons, providing students with a platform to apply their aptitudes.
The curriculum at MIGS is a rigorous approach – one that supports personal development while maintaining academic depth.
