The Cambridge Primary Programme (CPP) created by the University of Cambridge International Examinations is the core curriculum for Literacy and Mathematics in the classes from Early Years 3 to Grade 5. This educational programme consists of an established, high quality framework that develops students’ skills and competencies in a flexible and interesting way.
The International Primary Curriculum is a creative, thematic curriculum which provides a comprehensive and clear process of learning in the subjects of Science, Information Technology, Design Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art and Society. It also provides opportunities to engage in personal learning and promotes internationalism, which is particularly important to us. And not least, it is fun.
In addition, students study German (using the curriculum of the State of Saxony), Physical Education and Music.
The language of instruction is English. The EAL (English as Additional Language) programme provides support for students in Grades 1-5 who have difficulties with access to the curriculum in the English language.
The Primary Curriculum is a programme of high quality which prepares students well for their next educational step, be that at LIS, another international school or a school in Germany. At the end of Grade 4 the school is authorised to issue a Bildungsempfehlung. This is a recommendation for further education within the German system. Our courses do not specifically prepare children to enter the German education system and few children leave after Grade 4.
