School profile

Kings' Al Barsha is a purpose built School offering first class education. The school's dictum is ”the best by every child”.

Learning principles

Children take steps along their learning journey every day at Kings’, developing skills that are transferable and broad. These help children to make sense of the multicultural world in which they live. Children are encouraged to become effective, enthusiastic and independent learners who are committed to lifelong learning. The school's curriculum is unique and evolves each year influenced by the needs and interests of the children, current issues and local opportunities. Enriched by specialist teaching of French, Arabic, PE, ICT, Swimming, Music and Islamic Education it is designed to follow a themed, cross-curricular approach which allows children to be immersed in subjects and to make tangible and appropriate links. KSAB holistic approach is based on the English National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) with a clear emphasis on teaching skills and concepts that challenges children at all levels. Every opportunity is used to embrace first hand experiences and educational visits are used widely to enhance learning. KSAB has an impressive bank of technology and are excited by the impact the iPad initiative has had on children’s learning. This cutting edge approach to scaffolding learning is one of the many ways we enthuse children and equip them with the tools for life.
