Head Of Primary

The Primary section of the Azerbaijan British College provides a rigous educational experience for children in Year 1 through to Year 6 , ages 5 – 11 years old. We provide our students with a meaningful, challenging and inspiring program of study that adheres to the standards set by the British National Curriculum and related Cambridge curriculum. To do this we employ an inquiry based method for learning so that the high standards set by the curriculum content are supported by the essential “soft skills” needed to be successful and confident individuals, members of society and the future work place.

Student Outcomes

Each year we focus our students on “Be the Best Me”. As a vital part of this we, measure academic growth and progress and celebrate the success of our students. In addition to this , our student outcomes also mean we focus our attention on viewing any challenges we face as opportunities for greater learning and understanding. This growth mindset sets up the foundation for our students to be prepared for our future world, where they will need to know themselves as they get to know others, employ critical thinking skills as they challenge their own perspectives, values and understandings with an open mind. Where they will need to be confident communicators and work collaboratively with others, and have the necessary skills to be self motivated, organised, independent workers. Where creative thinking and higher level thinking skills will be valued in the workplace. Where they will need to community focused, aware of the needs of the world around them and conscientious members of the society they live in, including being both Digital Citizens and Global citizens in the world.

A Great Place To Learn

We give good education to your children

Our educational continuum seeks to provide for the development of the whole child.  The curriculum consists of 3 distinct parts.  

The Cambridge Core that see’s children work towards the Checkpoint examinations in Year 6. They follow the Cambridge Curriculum.  The ABC Foundation develops the whole child giving them a broad foundation from which to build from.   The curricular content is a synthesis from the UK National Curriculum and the Azerbaijan National Curriculum.  Global Student Development seeks to enrich our children’s education and is a unique ABC programme that provides them with the skills and understanding  to succeed both within their local setting and a wider global context.
