The Primary school recently moved into a new purpose-built campus – the third time it has moved into new and expanded premises. Our building houses classrooms for children from Nursery to Year 6. Excluding Nursery, all our year groups have 2 classes, each with a maximum number of 20 (Nursery and Reception 1, 24) children per class. All classrooms are furnished to enable the teachers to comfortably teach our curriculum and include a wall mounted 43-inch monitor to enhance the children’s learning. We also have a 23-station computer lab for the children’s computing lessons from Reception to Year 6. Classes also use this facility during other subject times to enrich the children’s learning. Our playground is equipped with an early years sandpit for our younger children and a sun-protected play area with impact-absorbing rubberised surface, both of which the children get much enjoyment from, as well as getting some exercise whilst playing! To enhance our Physical Education Curriculum, the school has a 7-a-side football pitch and a separate volley-ball and basketball court. The students also enjoying playing on these during their free time. Our campus also has a 25 x 7 metre swimming pool for swimming lessons during our Physical Education times but also for swimming galas, charitable and community events.
Our Learning Environment
International School of Siem Reap is accredited by the University of Cambridge International Examinations board, and provides students with a qualification accepted around the world. At ISSR we follow the British National Curriculum which offers a child centred, challenging and well-balanced curriculum for our pupils. The programme caters for the individual needs of all pupils allowing stimulation of the child’s interests and learning capabilities so they can realise their full potential. In addition we offer tuition of a modern foreign language.
This is all provided in a secure and safe environment in which we care first and foremost about our children and their educational progress. Our professionally designed programme of study with its built-in regular assessment steps using the British National Curriculum prepares children with the academic and social skills to become successful young adults. It also enables them to move on without difficulty should the parents’ employment take them to another part of Cambodia or to another country.
