International Primary Curriculum

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is an international curriculum providing a cross-curricular, thematic, rigorous teaching structure designed to engage children of all abilities in today’s world. The principle of the IPC is to focus on a combination of academic, personal and international learning for children worldwide, combined with innovative and exciting ways to learn. Originally introduced in 2000 to provide an international curriculum for 14 schools worldwide, today the IPC curriculum is taught in over 1000 schools in over 65 different countries.

One of the goals of the IPC Curriculum is for children to enjoy their learning; develop enquiring minds, develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens of the world, and develop a sense of their own nationality and culture, at the same time developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others. Most of all, the IPC strives to assist children in developing all the skills they will need in order to confidently face the world of tomorrow.
