Literacy is the cornerstone of every child’s education. At Ambler Literacy is an integrated and fundamental component of the whole primary curriculum.


We teach the fundamental skills of mathematics through a creative yet practical curriculum. All teachers have been trained in the CAME (Cognitive Acceleration through Maths Education) ‘Let’s think through maths’ technique which uses an explorative approach to maths to stimulate cognitive development. This can lead to long term improvements in learning across all subjects, as well as a good grounding in mathematics.


At Ambler we adopt an investigative approach to Science. The children learn about a wide range of areas, including living things, materials and natural phenomena.

Arts & Humanities

Pupils study a broad range of subjects including history, art and geography in a cross curricular way through the Creative Learning Journey. This topic-based approach enables us to offer an original, exciting and creative curriculum to re-ignite and inspire children’s learning.


Learning a foreign language gives children an opportunity to broaden their horizons and stretch their thinking. All our children in years 3, 4, 5, and 6 learn Spanish through listening and speaking, role-playing, songs and games.


Over the past few months ICT (Information Communication Technology) at Ambler has undergone an amazing transformation. The school now boasts a brand new, redesigned ICT area which is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment. Children can develop an array of ICT skills using PCs, laptops, Apple Macs and ‘fizz books’.


At Ambler we recognise that music is very much part of everyday life and can be a life-long love and activity.

Physical Education

It is important that as children grow and develop they understand the importance of physical activity in developing and maintaining their health and well being. At Ambler we aim to inspire our children to be healthy and active and to develop a passion for sport.

Beyond the Curriculum

At Ambler we go beyond the curriculum to educate and inspire the children about the world around them.

Spiritual & Moral Development

We believe that children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural needs are very important. We follow the Islington RE and PSHE curriculums, but please note that our parents have requested that the SRE module for year 4 be moved to year 5.

Curriculum and Assessment

At Ambler we want every pupil to wake up happy to go to school and not wanting to miss a minute just in case they miss something really exciting. Our curriculum is the core of this.

Let's make something beautiful together...
