Teaching approach of the school

CISG follows the National Curriculum for England. In addition to the subjects that are included in the teaching of the National Curriculum for England, the CISG places significant emphasis on preparing students for leadership and world citizenship. The inclusion of Arabic (MFL), Islamic studies and Qatar History is an integral aspect of the unique difference that the education at CISG provides for pupils.
The school's programmes provide numerous opportunities for students to develop their leadership and world citizenship skills across a range of subjects. Students are encouraged to develop skills of independence, organization and leadership; to become creative, sensitive thinkers; and to develop communication and decision making skills. They learn about the world and people around them through the introduction of current issues into the curriculum, in addition to developing an awareness about different countries and cultures. These two aspects of the curriculum are aimed at helping students develop into tolerant and mature individuals who are confident, responsible, and flexible individuals ready to meet the challenges of the world.
