The Primary School at International School Villa Amalienhof follows the National Curriculum of England and Wales which is internationally recognised. It has been adapted to meet the needs of an international community.The Primary School is divided into Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Lessons at ISVA are taught in English. However, as this is not the native language of a large number of children who attend our school, we offer English lessons according to the ability of the child until they can read, write and speak at a native English speaker level. Children can join the Primary School throughout the academic year subject to availability.
The Primary School is located in Oakwood House, a modern purpose-built building including a library. Primary pupils also have access to facilities in other buildings, which include a science laboratory, an art studio, a music room, a cafeteria, an assembly hall and outdoor learning areas.
We offer a wide range of extracurricular activities in the Primary School which pupils are recommended to take part in. Teachers and pupils work together during these activities. Pupils learn to accept responsibility and to work and learn in a team. Extracurricular activities take place Mondays to Wednesdays.
