At Global Paradigm English School, we treat every day as one step along a learning journey designed to inspire pupils to become effective, enthusiastic, independent and lifelong learners.
Our unique curriculum is based on the British National Programme. This curriculum spans literacy, numeracy, scientific exploration, digital literacy, while the core of the curriculum are the global skills Projects and wellbeing that evolves to meet the specific needs and interests of our pupils. Teaching takes a cross-curricular, theme-based approach, designed to immerse pupils in subjects and inspire them to make connections. There is a clear emphasis on teaching skills and concepts that challenge Pupils at all levels. We also aim to inspire pupils with exciting hands-on learning experiences, imaginative teaching and educational trips.
Pupils are encouraged to have a deeper understanding of how they think, allowing them to capitalise on problem-solving opportunities through creative and critical thinking. We believe that innovation evolves through curiosity and the willingness to take risks, and make connections across a wide array of disciplines.
The main curriculum is enriched by teaching of World Languages, Arabic, PE, ICT, Arts, and Music. Pupils also have access to an impressive level of technology that is just one of the ways we equip and enthuse our pupils for lifelong learning.
Why choose the British Education Curriculum?
British education has achieved a worldwide reputation for its quality, and is also recognised and respected all around the world. One of the huge benefits is how transferable it is – students can very easily move seamlessly from country to country or back to the UK if they wish.
British education is renowned for concerning itself with the development of the whole personality. Learning is very important, but not just enough in itself. Young people need to develop their potential by exploring, discovering the world around them, to think for themselves, form their own opinions, to relate to others, to develop their bodies healthily through sport and physical education, to gain experience in taking responsibility and becoming mature.
In the British education system, students are taught to learn by creative thinking, questioning, problem-solving and rather than by the mere retention of data and facts. This would acquire them with analytical and creative thinking skills that they will need in the working world. A number of teaching and assessment methods designed to develop independent thought as well as a mastery of the subject matter is also used. Parents are also very keen on the wide range of extra-curricular activities that the British education system provides.
Digital Learning & Education Technology
Today’s children are now entering school as fully fledged digital natives embracing technology from an early age.
Therefore, it is unsurprising, that technology is playing an increasingly central role in the classroom – not just in ICT and Computing, but in many other subjects as well. Through Digital Learning, the use of technology can help produce many benefits in the classroom for our pupils.
Digital learning is any type of learning that is facilitated by technology or by instructional practice that makes effective use of technology. It is a practice that uses technology effectively to strengthen a pupil’s learning experience, to provide access to challenging content and opportunities for learning anytime, anywhere.
Online assessments have the power to give students rapid feedback, while digital tools allow teachers to provide multimedia learning experiences: Video explanations, games, online note-taking and other features all work to help keep pupils engaged as they read and study. With the power of digital tools, educators can analyse test scores and tailor instruction to suit pupils’ strengths and weaknesses.
At Global Paradigm English School, it is a focus to use education technology to aid the development of 21st Century skills for our students. The ability to collaborate, communicate with others, to be a critical thinker as well as being creative and imaginative, will support and prepare students for their journey through school and beyond.
