Teaching approach of the school

Based on our innovative SEK Intelligent Clasroom model, and the learning principles of the best international standards, SEK has designed a Future Learning Model that offers personalized learning pathways for each student that foster collaboration, autonomy and the construction of meaning, and makes them future-ready for the third millennium

The central ideas of this model are:
• making learning more personalised
• nurturing student agency and self-directed learning
• using assessment to best support learning
• valuing diversity in learning approaches, environments and spaces
• nurturing global citizenship
• leveraging technology to support learning
• and supporting staff self-directed professional learning.

The NWIS curriculum is an international model developed by the SEK Education Group for the context of the Sultanate of Oman and designed to meet the demands of a global third millennium international school, and to put our Future Learning Model into practice.

Central to the philosophy of our curriculum model is the principle that purposeful, structured inquiry is a powerful vehicle for learning that promotes meaning and understanding, and challenges students to engage with significant ideas. The curriculum aims at building and reinforcing students’ sense of identity and cultural awareness, while equipping them with the skills to learn, acquire knowledge, individually or collaboratively, and to reflect upon this process so that they become lifelong learners. By applying those skills and knowledge, and through the development of the SEK Profile and the NWIS learner profile, students are supported in becoming the future citizens who will create a better and more peaceful world.

The curriculum model is grounded in the social and historical context of the Sultanate of Oman while also aligned with global contexts and international benchmarks. The curriculum will satisfy the educational needs of the local and expatriate population and is aimed at developing the next generation of Omani and international students who will become active contributors to the local, regional, Oman and global communities.

We aim for the curriculum to consist of the Cambridge Curriculum Standards.
