Primary Years Programme (1-6)

Our year designations at OurPlanet International School reflect our authorisation for International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) and align with designations for the Ministry of Education Arabic curriculum.

We welcome applications for Early Years 1-2 for students aged three to four and our Primary Year Programme 1-6 for students aged five to ten. Children’s ages will be calculated according to their age on 1 July.

The PYP offers students the academic advantages of the IB curriculum, along with distinctive benefits unique to OurPlanet International School Muscat.

A low teacher to student ratio – which allows us to provide a differentiated curriculum with focused attention on the unique needs of each of our students.

Experienced, well-qualified, international faculty. All our teachers are highly trained and have years of experience teaching Primary years. We recruit educators from around the globe, because we believe our students can best understand global citizenship when their teachers are themselves globally representative.

An internationally renowned IB PYP curriculum. This esteemed educational programme encourages the development of globally minded, curious and independent learners. At OurPlanet Muscat, we prioritise literacy and numeracy in the Primary years, and are making investments in our assessment and reporting practices to continually improve targeted teaching and learning.

A commitment to multilingualism. While English is our language of instruction, PYP students at OurPlanet Muscat can also choose to study Arabic or another language. We also offer additional language acquisition support to new students with limited English.

We care for the whole child. The rich variety of extracurricular activities offered through our Beyond the Classroom programme allows our students to engage in athletic, cultural, artistic, service and instructive past times in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

We strive to make each child feel safe and at home. Our Primary School is an exciting, fun, happy and productive community committed to supporting the growth of vibrant, resilient and successful lifelong learners.
