Primary (Grades 1 – 7)

Giving your daughter an inspiring and nurturing environment in which to learn and grow.

School Life at Downe House Primary

Primary (Grades 1 – 7) at Downe House Muscat is designed to give your daughter a broad range of  educational experiences. From the start of their Downe House journey, girls are encouraged to collaborate and to inject creativity into their work as they explore new subjects and skills.

Through a carefully tailored academic programme, we aim to inspire younger pupils to develop a love of learning outside the classroom and to widen their knowledge of the Omani community and the world.

We also encourage all pupils to enjoy a range of experiences and opportunities, including the breadth of co-curricular clubs and activities on offer. Your daughter’s involvement allows her to flourish as an independent young girl, building strong friendships and finding her own place in the vibrant Downe House community.

Lower School (Grades 1 – 3)

We appreciate that choosing a school for your daughter, especially at such a young age, is one of the most important decisions that you ever make.

The first few years of school are central in shaping your daughter’s future educational outcomes. At Downe House Muscat, we place focus on the individual and take every opportunity to guide your daughter’s learning through self-discovery and developing their own array of interests.

We are fortunate to be able to offer very favourable staffing ratios, with each class teacher in Lower School being supported by a full-time teaching assistant so that all the children receive the support they need to fulfil their potential.

Our Lower School curriculum is tailored to meet the developmental needs of each child following the requirements of the Cambridge Primary Curriculum (CPC) Framework. We promote effective early learning through play and exploration, active learning, and creative and critical thinking.

Middle School (Grades 4 – 5)

We passionately believe that our Middle School provision is the closest a school can get to offering the support and comfort of a home within the context of a formal education setting. The moment your daughter joins our Middle School, she will embark upon an adventure of self-fulfilment, ensuring that this period represents one of the most rewarding and enriching phases of her life.

Middle School at Downe House Muscat is designed to ensure that everyone has the best opportunity to succeed. Supported by the very best staff, our curriculum is carefully balanced to ensure that it can meet individual academic needs and learning styles. Our classes are small and familiar, allowing your daughter to develop into an independent and inquisitive learner who is confident in both herself and her environment.

As your daughter progresses through the Middle School, we gradually introduce a more structured approach to learning, ensuring that she is prepared for the progression to the Upper School. Our curriculum provides children with fresh opportunities and new challenges, helping them to make the most of their talents and providing scope for them to develop new and exciting interests.

Upper School (Grades 6 – 7)

Upper School at Downe House Muscat is designed to give your daughter a broad, engaging, and rewarding educational experience. As well as supporting her emotionally, we help each girl build resilience and encourage her to seize new opportunities in a safe, nurturing, and inspiring environment.

Through a carefully tailored academic programme (Cambridge Lower Secondary Curriculum), we encourage girls to develop a love of learning and an instinct for inquiry. The Upper School curriculum provides girls with a global perspective while also broadening their knowledge of Omani culture and values. Girls are encouraged to collaborate and to inject creativity into their work as they explore new subjects.

Upper School life is by no means limited to the academic sphere. Girls participate in a broad range of extra-curricular clubs and activities, helping them to develop new skills and interests. Our provision allows your daughter to flourish as an independent young woman, building strong friendships and finding her own place in the vibrant Downe House community.
