Ambrosoli International School enjoys an outstanding reputation in the wider community.
The school is based around a true community of children, parents, teachers and associated staff, which is augmented by an inclusive and vibrant Parent-Teacher Association. The wider city and country environment within which the school is embedded, offers a wonderful setting within which school staff can begin to experience the African continent. Not only is Kampala a vibrant city that is developing rapidly, but Uganda remains true to Winston Churchill’s description of it as the ‘Pearl of Africa’.
A diverse programme of activities is available daily from 2.20pm for children in reception through to year 6. The clubs are selected by the student council and typically include football, drumming, photography, ballet, wood crafting, swimming and cross-country.
The curriculum at Ambrosoli is based on the England and Wales Curriculum with adaptations, as required, to match our international children, staff and setting. Every child receives a broad and balanced curriculum that includes Numeracy, Literacy, Science, Humanities (History and Geography), Art and Design, Music, Physical Education (PE), Swimming, French, Information Computer Technology (ICT) Personal and Social Health Education (PSHE). Since August 2013, we have been using the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) to support our curriculum. This is an exciting step for the school which ensures that our themes are well linked, relevant and internationally minded. Numeracy and literacy is taught largely outside the IPC themes following the English curriculum. For more information about the IPC, use the following link http://www.greatlearning.com/ipc/
Additional experiences and skills are actively encouraged, particularly through after school clubs, in order to give Ambrosoli children a rich educational experience catering for their various learning styles, needs and interests. Value is given to all curriculum areas in order to prepare children for the world beyond Ambrosoli.
