AGS aims to provide a high quality British style primary education adapted to meet the varied needs of our international school community. The curriculum is designed to encourage students to reach their full potential and inspire them to create their own future. We develop a sense of pride and belonging to nurture all members of our community so they feel valued and prepared to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.

Termly topics are used to influence learning in a variety of subjects and links to real life as much as possible. Discrete subject lessons are taught where appropriate. Individual class teachers are given the opportunity to deliver activities in their specialism or areas of personal interest. e.g. Specialist sports, music, and theatre. We have specialist teachers for Islamic Education, Arabic, Social Studies, Music, Drama and Physical Education. Learning Support and academic extension is organised through our "Personalised Learning Pathway". Core subjects are covered through the Cambridge International Curriculum. The foundation subjects are covered through either the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).

Although AGS largely follows the Cambridge, and IPC Curriculums, given our international status, we are able to creatively devise broad based programmes of study which are geared to further extend our students learning as they make the transition through into Senior School and beyond. As an inclusive school we provide support in areas such as English as a second language, to those students who would benefit from this intervention.

Our aim is to provide stimulating learning experiences that fully engage individuals to inspire them to reach their full potential and give them the confidence to embrace success. We create realistic and well-resourced pathways through to the end of senior school. Our students leave AGS with academic qualifications that enable them to move effectively forward into adulthood. Academic expectation remains high and reflects the necessary rigour to allow our students to be confident and competitive in their chosen career.

Lower Primary

This consists of Grades 1 and 2 and spans the ages of 5 – 7 years of age. Learning environments are spacious and enhanced by interactive displays that celebrate the children’s work across all curriculum areas. Every classroom and specialist room has an interactive whiteboard/digital screen that is used by both teachers and children to extend learning opportunities. The curriculum offers opportunities to develop skills that are transferable and broad. Emphasis is placed on teaching skills and concepts that challenge children at all levels. Opportunities to enhance first hand experiences are embraced and educational trips are planned to extend learning opportunities. GL assessments in English Mathematics and Science are carried out at the end of each year, benchmarking our students with the best international schools worldwide.

Upper Primary

This consists of Grades 3-5 and spans the ages of 7-10 years of age. Our students study a similar range of subjects to those undertaken in Lower Primary. They learn these to greater depths, including how to apply their skills and knowledge appropriately. This adds to their understanding of the skill requirements of each of the subjects ready for their transition into the Senior School. GL assessments in English Mathematics and Science are carried out at the end of each year, benchmarking our students with the best international schools worldwide.

Arabic Classes

Learning a language is a process that requires considerable time and practice; however it is one of the most rewarding things your child can learn in school. The Arabic language classes at AGS are divided into two sections: Arabic for native Arab speakers (Arabic A) Arabic for non-native speakers (Arabic B) The curriculum for Arabic A follows the Oman Ministry of Education requirements and is enhanced by a range of resources and activities that promote active and purposeful learning. Children are also encouraged to borrow Arabic books from the school library to ensure that they extend their appreciation of Arabic literature.

Islamic Education

Islamic Education is a compulsory subject for Muslim students. It is taught in Arabic for Native Arabic speakers and in English for those students who do not speak Arabic as their first language but require Islamic education. The Islamic Department follows the Ministry of Education curriculum. Learning Islamic concepts are combined with practical learning at AGS and related to real life examples were possible. Our enthusiastic and dedicated teachers explain prescribed Islamic topics that include Hadiths, Aqidah(Faith), and Akhlaq (Manners), Islamic History, Islamic Social Studies together with the appropriate Surahs from the Noble Qur’an. Our Islamic Education programme is also enhanced by extra Qu’ran recitation and memorisation. We believe that an educational partnership between school and home is vital and we strive to ensure that progress and attainment are shared with both students and their parent
