Primary

Our approach to teaching children is unconventional as we incorporate play with learning. We also focus on social and emotional skills, how to improve students’ gross and fine motor skills while cultivating their listening, speaking, music and art skills.

All GOTS schools – Primary and Secondary – are from Monday to Friday, 8am until 3:45pm.

Lessons are in English but we place equal importance on Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin.

All our coaches (as they are known at GOTS) have an early childhood education diploma/degree, CIDTL (Cambridge International Diploma for Teacher Learners) and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) for the Academics certification from the American Board of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

Only 15 to 20 students per class to ensure they get the best out of each lesson.

Within the Cambridge primary stage, the GOTS International Primary Programme for five to 11-year-olds sets clear learning objectives in English, Mathematics and Science skills for each year of primary education. What makes GOTS different is the learning environment. We focus on fun, activity-based learning.

They include English, Mathematics, Science, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), History, Geography, Art and Music

Yes, we also have two special programmes – FinancialSmart and S.H.I.N.E. which is the first experiential Emotional Intelligence focused training framework in Southeast Asia.

FinancialSmart is aimed at developing financial-savvy kids and teenagers by complementing academic achievement with financial literacy. Your child will learn to understand financial concepts like saving, investing, interest, assets vs liabilities, providing them the foundation for financial literacy.

It stands for (S)ocial, (H)umble, (I)maginative, (N)etwork, (E)ffective and it helps mould your child to be committed to life’s core values that will accelerate his or her journey towards industry or entrepreneurial success.

The scholars spend 40 hours a week at GOTS, the equivalent of a normal work week for adults.

Adults hate bringing work home, so it is the same for children. Scholars and parents are ‘encouraged’ to talk about their day and take turns reading to each other. We consider this ‘homework’.

Our summative tests will show the scholars’ progress at the primary level to prepare them for secondary school.
