UK School Curriculum

When you are travelling to another country to teach, we understand that you want to prepare in every way you can!

This is why we suggest a Departure Checklist and also help you with a UK Induction upon your arrival.

If you really want to prepare, you can check out the UK Curriculum government website. This explores what is covered in the curriculum, how the school year is laid out and much more.

In the UK, we use Key Stages when communicating about childrens' academic levels. Primary covers Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 1, Secondary covers Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, and college (sixth form) covers higher Key Stages. Nursery Level (younger than primary) is called Reception, Early Years or Foundation Stage. These groupings may differ for private or independant schools.
