Primary


Welcome to the Primary School at KGIS.  We cater for both bi-lingual learning – English and Arabic – and also offer international classes where students learn in English only through the National Curriculum of England.

Arabic Classes

Arabic and English speaking children are taught a bilingual education which consists of approximately
50% Arabic and 50% English lessons. Children follow the Ministry of Education Arabic and Islamic Education Syllabus and the British National Curriculum.  

 

International Classes

KGIS also has an international class allowing children who only want to study in English. This is a great opportunity to be immersed in an English speaking curriculum in a small class setting allowing which provides the environment for students to advance quickly in their learning of English.
