The Creative British School is a thriving British School located in the centre of Musaffah’s commercial area. A member of the PACE education group, CBS offers high quality education to over a thousand students aged 3.8 to 18. The curriculum is modelled on the English National Curriculum and IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) exams with The International Cambridge examination board.

The National curriculum of England is followed in Primary and ensures that all students receive the same high standards of education irrelevant of which class they are in. From grade 10, students study the IGCSE programme to complete their International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and sit their final International examinations at the end of grade 11.

The Curriculum is divided into five parts: Kindergarten (KG1 & KG2), Primary (Grades 1 to 6), Secondary (Grades 7 to 9), IGCSE (Grades 10 & 11) and A-Level (Which we do not offer at the moment).

Kindergarten
Offers a curriculum of skills and knowledge. We focus on Communication, Literacy, Mathematics, Physical development, Knowledge of the world around us, personal and social development and we also offer Arabic and Islamic lessons.

 

Primary
Our curriculum is carefully organised under themed topics which incorporate a range of subjects. Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 focus on English, Mathematics, Science, Arabic, Islamic, Civics/Social studies, Art and design, Geography, History, ICT and PE.

Students normally study around 10 subjects to give them a wide base of knowledge and skill acquisition. Subjects include English, Mathematics, combined sciences, Arabic, Islamic, Civics/social studies, French, Geography, History, ICT and PE.

 

IGCSE

The board used is the Cambridge International Examination board. Examinations are taken from April to June in their graduating year, Grade 11.
