Lanna’s Primary School (ages 5 -11) builds on the foundations of our Early Years programme, further supporting the social and intellectual development of each individual student. Encompassing a wide range of academic and extra-curricular opportunities, Lanna Primary brings out the best of each child with small class sizes, experienced and dedicated teachers and virtually non-existent discipline problems. Lanna students truly enjoy going to school!
Lanna’s Primary teachers develop activities supporting a wide range of individual learning styles. Students learn while working together and while studying independently to prepare them for further study whether they return to their home countries or continue in Lanna’s Secondary School.
Lanna International School recognises that numeracy and literacy together form the foundation for all further school work. Our Primary curriculum follows the framework set out by the Cambridge Primary (CP) programme for English, Mathematics and Science.
CP closely follows the objectives set out for the British National Curriculum. The main advantage of following CP is that it offers the school a tried and tested framework in which to base the teaching of all core subjects. CP also gives the school the opportunity to administer standardised tests that allows teachers to report purposefully and monitor students’ progress more effectively.
Students in the Primary school study five specialist subjects, with specialist teachers: Art, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Music, Physical Education (P.E) and Thai. With the exception of Thai, all specialist subjects taught at Lanna use the learning objectives, and in some cases schemes of work, based on the English National Curriculum.
In the final year of Primary education, students can take the CP Checkpoint examinations. All students completing the examinations will be issued with a Primary Certificate of Achievement by University of Cambridge International Examinations.
