LAMB English Medium School started in 1996 as a service to staff children. It is now open to enrolment also to non-staff children. Non-staff children are now 42 out of the total 135 students (31%).
|Students in First School||Pre-school to Class 4||91|
|Students in Upper School||Class 5 to 10||44|
The school currently runs classes from Pre-school to O-level.
The staff/ student ratio is high, with 20 teachers for the 135 students
The school aims to provide high quality education in a Christian environment. It strives to develop students to their full spiritual, physical, social, cognitive and emotional potential. For learning style, a strong emphasis is given to seeking understanding. We hope to see the children become models of leadership and service, with hearts focused on the kingdom of God and serving the poor.
The school is part of enabling LAMB to serve the poor, both directly by enabling local students from families without adequate resources to attend the school, and indirectly by providing for the needs of the families of LAMB staff.
With both national and foreign staff children, the school uses English as its core language. Children who graduate from LAMB School will be fluent in English.
Bangla is a compulsory subject and is taught to a level comparable to that in local Bangla Medium Schools.
Standards and Curriculum Content
LAMB school teaches according to the guidelines set in the English National Curriculum. O-levels are certified by University of Cambridge through the British Council. A new building extension with science laboratory facilities is part of enabling this.
The literature used and the topics chosen for the curriculum content represent the variety of nationalities and cultures in the student body. We seek to ensure that each child develops the skills, knowledge and understanding that he needs to succeed, each in his own culture.
Students and teachers are from a variety of nationalities, religions, people groups, customs and cultures. Students are representative of all levels of LAMB staff.
This gives us a unique opportunity to encourage and teach mutual respect and understanding, through working together.
Recognizing that all people are created by and are important to God, academic qualifications are not a factor in admission to the school. The teachers do their best to help children with special needs to succeed in spite of their difficulties.
Faith and Trust in God
LAMB English Medium School is a Christian school. Through morning prayers, weekly assemblies and Bible classes, and through the interaction of teachers and students we seek to teach integrity, high moral standards and faith in God.
The school is committed to making itself available to as many children as possible. To help achieve this, a stipend fund is in operation. For the school year 2012-13, full fees are paid by 66% of pupils, with the remainder receiving support.
