From Kindergarten to grade 8 the school follows the English National Curriculum. We are the only school in Mumbai to do so. This supports strong learning as it provides a clear and logical progression of skills development in all subject areas. Within DSB, we treat the curriculum as a strong foundation on which we develop interesting and innovative learning opportunities at all levels. The flexibility in the curriculum enables plenty of opportunities for extension and following exciting new ideas. We enrich this curriculum with schemes of learning from varied sources including the German and French governments' programmes for the acquisition of German and French language. This curriculum is supported by a rich diversity of teaching materials to bolster learning in both Primary and Secondary in subjects as diverse as Maths and ICT. Following the National Curriculum, gives us access to varied assessment tools that ensure we can monitor progress in the core subjects of Literacy/English, Numeracy/Mathematics and Science and compare the progress of our students with English and international schools. The English national curriculum naturally progresses to the IGCSE and provides a strong base for success at higher levels. National Curriculum
