“We aim to ensure that all children are happy, confident, well motivated, enthusiastic and excited about their learning.”

Children are given access to various learning opportunities, allowing each child to develop at their own pace and achieve their full potential. The learning journey is facilitated by our qualified and experienced teachers.



British National Curriculum

AHS bases our learning programme on the British National Curriculum, which has been adaptated to include local and global perspectives. Our programme of study provides a clear and focused teaching framework for English and Mathematics, as well as a broad range of other curriculum areas and learning opportunities:

  • Science
  • Humanities (which includes History and Geography)
  • Art and Design Technology
  • Information, Communication and Technology (ICT)
  • Physical Education (PE)
  • Bahasa Indonesia
  • Dance
  • Music
  • Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)


Inquiry-Based Programme

Our engaging Inquiry-based programme incorporates the Curriculum objectives from these learning areas, while developing higher order thinking. Our holistic approach to learning ensures that our programmes are balanced, foster a love of learning and empower students with a skill set to thrive as confident, independent life-long learners.


Purpose-Built Campus for Student Growth

In our Primary school, classes are taught in combination with our expat and Indonesian teacher. Our spacious open-air joglo classroom and outdoor learning spaces allow for many exciting and varied learning opportunities. The Primary students also have a purpose built tree house style playground equipment, to develop their gross motor skills.


Continous Assessment for Informed Teaching

Assessment of students’ progress is continuous throughout the year and in line with the standards set out in the British National Curriculum. Two interim reports and one summary report are completed during the academic year, as well as 2 Parent and Child-Teacher Conferences and a Student-Led Conference. Each of these provide updated feedback regarding each child’s education, development and progress.
