What is Al Bateen Academy's Curriculum?
The curriculum at Al Bateen Academy has been based on an adapted English National Curriculum.
It progresses through the inquiry-led International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) in Primary School, into the challenging yet rewarding I/GCSE in Middle School, and culminates with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) in Post-16 study, developing students physically, intellectually, emotionally, and ethically.
Students at Al Bateen Academy consistently achieve above world average points when they achieve their full IB DP.
The combination of both curriculums gives a complete learning experience to the child. Children do not only learn in formal ‘lessons’ or in the activities prepared by the teachers; significant emphasis is given to the attitudes and values promoted within the school. Often referred to as "the hidden curriculum", the development of Al Bateen students’ personal, social, health and moral education is fundamental to supporting the growth of the ‘whole child’.
