Small class sizes, excellent teaching and high expectations are the cornerstones of the Foremarke curriculum delivery.

At Foremarke, we are preparing pupils not only to pass examinations but also for an enriched and productive adult life. As an academically selective school, our curriculum is rigorous but this co-exists with sensitivity to the individual needs of our pupils, who are challenged but not overwhelmed.

Our curriculum is broad, balanced, retaining emphasis on Reading, English, Mathematics and Science. Teaching is traditional and subjects are delivered by exceptional teachers who have high expectations of their pupils. Parents can expect to see and follow their child’s work in books where neatness, good handwriting and accuracy are expected. Our teachers create a vibrant, stimulating environment, using modern methods and teaching philosophies where appropriate.

Our curriculum, which follows the New National Curriculum for England, is enhanced with elements of the ISEB curriculum and is designed to meet the rigorous standards expected for 11+, Common Entrance and Scolarship examinations.  Where necessary, extra support in preparing for these examinations will be given.

Whilst academic excellence is of paramount importance, at Foremarke our small class sizes allow us to cater effectively for a range of abilities in most year groups. All children, regardless of ability, are expected to be working at levels that will serve them well when applying for senior schools either in UK independent education, in Dubai or internationally.

Prep (Homework)

Prep is an important aspect of Foremarke and is used regularly to extend, consolidate and reflect on what has been learnt that day. The independent learners we are looking to nurture should take increasing responsibility for their own learning and we believe that the setting of regular prep helps to encourage this.
