A warm welcome to the New English School Primary Department, where we are proud of what our students and staff accomplish every day. Here you will find more information about the department, a taster of the opportunities our students have here at NES, and further information about curriculum and class structure.

On Overview of the Department


The Primary Department at NES is comprised of Early Years and Foundation (KG & Reception), Infants (Years 1 & 2) and Juniors (Years 3 to 6). This covers the age range from 4 - 11 and mirrors the United Kingdom standard Primary School structure. Through their time in the Primary Department here at NES, students will begin to grasp, develop and eventually master the skills and knowledge that will enable them to become well rounded and successful individuals. This includes all aspects of education: social, academic, sporting and creative. As our students move through the department, they thrive under the care of highly qualified and skilled practitioners, benefitting from carefully crafted provision and outstanding pedagogy.

During their time in the Primary Department, students are encouraged to become independent learners, motivated teammates, confident leaders and considerate classmates. With specialist teachers for Computer Science, Music, PE, Arabic and Islamic Studies, Primary students have access to rich, high quailty provision accross and beyond the UK National Curriculum. A wide range of Extra-Curricular activities, offered free of charge, also enable students to explore interests and learn new skills. 

The backbone of the NES philosophy is the 'I am an NES Student' code, which details our consistent expectations of student conduct and attitude. This places great importance on the attributes we believe combine to help our students grow to become upstanding young representatives within both the school and the wider global community.
