Grades 1-6

EBS follows the Cambridge International Primary Programme (“CIPP”) which is a curriculum framework devised by The University of Cambridge which focuses on the development of English, Mathematics, and Science skills, knowledge and understanding in younger learners, between ages of 6 to 11 years old.

It is closely aligned with The British National System and in fact English is taught as a first language. CIPP provides guidance for curriculum development and classroom teaching and learning. It enables teachers to assess children's learning as they progress through Primary Progression tests at stages 3, 4 & 5 culminating in the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint exam taken in year 6.

CIPP develops essential skills in literacy, numeracy and scientific enquiry in students in the primary phase of their education, while covering a good knowledge base reflecting a global perspective. The Primary Programme has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top-quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning.

The Primary Programme progresses students seamlessly into middle years curricula, such as Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme and IGCSE. Children are also taught Humanities, Arabic (which follows the Egyptian Ministry of Education curriculum), Religion, French, Physical Education and Music.
