Our internationally recognised and personalised pedagogy
develop the critical thinking needed in the 22nd century
We want to fulfil every child’s true potential
At EtonHouse International school, your child will have access to a world class international education. We have partnered with Oxford University Press to deliver their international curriculum which follows the rigours framework of the British curriculum and the Key Stages with age appropriate subjects that are explored in greater depth with each age group. The seamless curriculum is delivered from EYFS to Sixth Form to ensure the very best education outcomes for students.
The curriculum is divided into areas known as Key Stages:
- EYFS- Early Years and Foundation Stage (ages 18 months to 5 years )
- Key Stage 1 (ages 5-7 )
- Key Stage 2 (ages 7-10)
- Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14)
- Key Stage 4 (ages 14-16)
- Key Stage 5 (ages 16-18)
Our Image of Child
EtonHouse schools regard the child as the first and singularly most important consideration. Our ‘image of child’ informs not only our philosophy, curriculum, and environment design but also our training and recruitment.
In our schools, we view children as competent thinkers and communicators. They are:
Our Image of Educator
Our teachers are a community of life-long learners who are committed to working with colleagues, children, and families to create genuinely responsive and meaningful learning for your children. They recognise the importance of observing each child within a socio-cultural context and using inquiry and exploration as central modes of learning. They make teaching and learning visible as they invest time and effort into developing deeply reflective pedagogical documentation.
We believe the environment acts as the third teacher and is a reflection of the philosophy and pedagogy that the school subscribes to. For example, when you walk into a classroom where documentation is at the child’s eye level, and each child’s work is beautifully displayed, it reflects that the child is at the centre of all decision making.
An environment can be intentionally designed to inspire exploration, collaboration, and creativity, or it can be laid out in a way that encourages individual work.
In our schools, you will see materials and provocations laid out in purposeful ways to spark curiosity and conversations. You will find resources that are developed based on sustainable.
Our Unique Pedagogy
Our curriculum from Pre-School to High School is designed to empower students to become independent and passionate learners.
In Pre-School, our Inquiry-based pedagogy that is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach supports children’s natural curiosity. We are such strong believers in this world-renowned approach that we founded Reggio Emilia in Asia for Children (REACH) in 2013 as one of the acknowledged reference points in the region for the dissemination of information about the Educational Project of Reggio Emilia.
The Primary and High School both follow the Oxford International Curriculum — it continues to use an inquiry-based approach to help children acquire important skills and knowledge, but there is an added emphasis on wellbeing and fostering the joy of learning.
Our interdisciplinary approach to education helps students to make meaningful connections between subjects, and consolidate learning.
Examination skills-based training also ensures they are well-prepped to complete the IGCSE.
By the time EtonHouse students enter High School, they have a robust foundation to coping with the academic rigours of Key Stage 4 and 5, and the focus moves to prepping them to take on University and the world.
Student agency drives the pedagogy — students take charge of their own learning so they develop the innovation and critical thinking skills needed to be protagonists of change in the future.
