Excelsior College pays close attention to the national
curriculum and ensures that its contents are taught. Our course of study also reaches beyond the
national curriculum in providing a much broader base and range of subjects necessary to provide
our children with a greater breadth of knowledge and quality of early educational experience –
a prerequisite for living, working and hoping to shape a rapidly changing world.
The curriculum is subject to regular review. We respond to government policy changes especially in its implications
to the national curriculum. Our strategy is to implement elements of government policies which best
fits our needs. However we do take advantage of our independence from statutory requirements to
make innovations on the curriculum that is unique to us.
The teaching periods have a mix of humanities, science and mathematics. Uniquely we aim to integrate
all aspects of the curriculum so that we respond to children’s own unique style of learning. Through
this approach we also aim to bring children’s attention to the advantages of inter disciplinary
understanding of the curriculum.
We look to a future where knowledge is integrated and where those with appreciation of this approach will
be at an advantage. Our curriculum and its delivery are based upon this projection. We have regular
assemblies in which children take turns to individually present issues and take question around social
and personal education.
In addition to regular formal physical education aimed at building children physical dexterity and
competitive edge in sporting activities children also practise kinesiology as a mean of developing further

their learning by way of consulting on marking engaging them actively in their learning. Physical education
