Our Curriculum

At Meadow Hall, we run a site based curriculum made up of the delicate blend of the British National Curriculum and the strength of the Nigerian.

The British Curriculum

The British National Curriculum applies to pupils of compulsory school age. It is organized on the basis of four key stages: Key Stage 1 (5 – 7 years) and Key Stage 2 (7 – 11 years) fall within the Primary School, while Key Stage 3 (11 – 14) and Key Stage 4 (14 – 16) fall within the Secondary School.

The subjects under the curriculum will be "Core Subjects"

  • English (Literacy)
  • Maths (Numeracy)
  • Science
  • ICT

and the non core foundational subjects include

  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
  • French
  • Arts & Craft
  • Music
  • History
  • Physical Education
  • Geography

Also the British Curriculum aims at getting the pupils ready for Standard Attainment Tests (SATS) at the end of Year 2, Year 6 and Year 9 and for their IGSCEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education Exams) in year 11.

Nigerian Curriculum

The Nigerian Curriculum will be taught along with the British Curriculum. Subjects taught under this curriculum include Social Studies, Religious Education and Nigerian Languages. Our site-based curriculum aims to help pupils:

Field Trips (Excursions)

Field trips are also a vital part of our curriculum as children go on curriculum – related trips both within and outside the country to experience firsthand what they have been taught in class. They are therefore opportuned to apply knowledge gained to real life situations.
