National Curriculum of England and Wales

At British school of Trana classes are taught following and in accordance with the National Curriculum of England and Wales. The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject. This curriculum is the benchmark against which schools located in England and Wales are judged against. As a British school we ensure that all students learn the subjects and themes outlined within the national curriculum according to their year group.


Key stages


The national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS). At the end of each key stage, the teacher will formally assess your child’s performance. As you navigate our website, you may see us use terms like ‘KS1,’ KS2,’ and so on. These are in reference to students’ key stages. You can see the division of key stages in the chart below, taken directly from the UK national website.


For more information about the curriculum, we encourage you to look at the official UK webpage for more information.
