CHIA offers a broad and balanced Christ-centred curriculum guided by the British National curriculum. Our Curriculum enables our students to make maximum progress towards the national and international standards.
There is a standard assessment based on content from both the national and international standards used to evaluate students’ attainment levels at admission. The information on the assessment enables us to know their strengths and areas of weaknesses which is then used to tailor their learning programmes. Our students are graded according to ability in order to facilitate effective learning, where there are multi-faceted challenges.
Early emphasis is placed on literacy, numeracy, science and creative thinking as well as spiritual, personal and social skills. Our curriculum is delivered through contemporary and Montessori methodologies. The small class system of low teacher to students ratio (20 -1) enables daily assessment and early intervention on children’s work and style of learning. Students who achieve above the expected level are given course/research works, appropriate to their level, to extend their knowledge, understanding and innovative skills.
