English National Curriculum

The English National Curriculum is among the most in-demand study options in the world, respected for its high academic standards and focus on developing confidence and individual thinking. The learning pathway is delivered through enquiry or ‘project-based learning’, a method of teaching which inspires a love of learning and deepens a student’s knowledge by challenging them to complete real-world tasks. In this way, the English National Curriculum is considered to be one of the most engaging of all.

students work towards the IGCSE qualifications before progressing to A-levels – two of the most rigorous, reliable and highly regarded examinations available. The subjects taught include vocational options, which offer students a clear pathway to further education or their chosen career.

A-levels, like IGCSE qualifications, are recognised worldwide by leading universities, helping students gain access to their preferred university in Britain or elsewhere abroad. As a result, the English National Curriculum is popular among expatriate families travelling between countries.

The Aldar Academies difference

We employ qualified and experienced British teachers to deliver the English National Curriculum, to make sure our uncompromising academic standards are met. We also tailor the curriculum for an international audience, for example, replacing the study of British history with general international history. Aldar Academies is a leading provider of the English National Curriculum in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, offering the programme at six of our seven academies.
