English National Curriculum
“SFBS is committed to a child-centered philosophy that promotes positive social interactions, emotional health, and well-being for our students.”
Ages 3 - 5
RECEPTION & FOUNDATION
Our exciting Pre-School serves children from 3 to 5 years of age and follows an enhanced version of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which recognises and develops the many ways in which children express themselves.
Students follow a curriculum rich in language, words, movement, play, painting, drawing, sculpture, music, role play, and most importantly, outdoor experiences in the natural environment. Students are already developing reading skills and are able to access specialist teachers for a wide range of subjects. World Language lessons begin as young as 3 years old.
YEARS 1 - 6
KEY STAGE 1 & 2
In our dynamic Primary School, Seoul Foreign British School continues to promote a cross-curricular approach to learning, but at this stage there is more emphasis on teaching discrete subjects. English, Mathematics, and specialist lessons are scheduled throughout the week.
The English National Curriculum is still the basis of our approach, but we have internationalised and enhanced the curriculum to offer our SFBS students more opportunities. Individual needs are assessed in an effort to exploit each child’s full potential academically, physically, emotionally, and socially.
Children can access a wide range of lessons and opportunities throughout their journey from Year 1 to Year 6. World Languages are taken daily. In developing the whole child, we also ensure the importance of extracurricular activities, music, drama, art, and sports.
YEAR 7 - 9
BRITISH SCHOOL - KEY STAGE 3
The Key Stage 3 programme of study builds on the firm academic foundations laid down in the Primary School and prepares students to enter the High School at SFS or to take on the IGCSE or MYP elsewhere.
Our KS3 students are required to take responsibility. They lead and initiate learning and related activities, not only for themselves, but also for their fellow students and the local community. Students act as positive role models and develop close and positive relationships with their peers.
Action and consideration for the less fortunate is a key component of the programme, which helps students make sense of their world and learn how to make it a better place.
“Our children regularly compete in international competitions in academics, sport, and music. Whilst we are proud of our achievements, we also understand the experience itself is a fundamental learning opportunity.”
