Primary School

Stellar International School is delighted to welcome everyone to our Primary School. Students from the Early Years Centre effortlessly transition to Primary School, where they continue to develop as lifelong learners and start on their journey to become global citizens. We encourage each child to grow their full potential through engaging, enjoyable, and meaningful learning. Our unique primary curriculum integrates the Cambridge International Curriculum, Singapore Curriculum, and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) to provide thematic-based learning to students aged 5 to 11 years old.

International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a child-centered curriculum based on the National Curriculum of England (UK), with comprehensive assessments to monitor and evaluate each child’s progress. It is implemented in over 1000 schools in over 100 countries worldwide. It is a comprehensive, systematic, and innovative curriculum that provides a clear learning approach and specific learning goals for each subject.
