Drop Down Curriculum

Our Drop Down curriculum’s primary aims are to ensure the students are given the opportunity to learn a variety of skills throughout the curriculum, and the student’s children are prepared for the 21st Century. The “drop down” part of it is referring to let’s drop down our pens and actively learn some important skills.


The Drop Down curriculum consists of creative arts (art, design, textiles), performing arts (music and drama) and design and technology (including cooking and media).
