Tashkent Ulugbek International School

offers a Year 1 to Year 9 and Year 10 to Year 11 college preparatory program that helps students to become independent and thoughtful learners and to develop deep understanding in the subjects they study. TUIS strives to provide a dynamic, creative, original, academic curriculum based on the UK system, but tailored to the needs of our students.


It is important our pupils become competant readers, writers, speakers and listeners, all of which provide pupils with an essential foundation for success in all subjects. Therefore, a love of books and a desire to read is fostered throughout the Primary Years, and as children progress through the primary school they build upon the enthusiasm for reading and writing and this enables them to have increased opportunities and access to the whole curriculum. Through focused activities, discussions, drama, debates, workshops and class assemblies, our pupils develop confidence in using higher level language skills. We have an amazing library which sets the standards in valuing reading and learning. Please click the link below for English high frequency words.


Maths lessons are timetabled everyday in all classes.  Pupils are encouraged to apply arithmetic fluency to problems and to understand and appreciate the importance of mathematics.  Problem solving and investigations provide the pupils with opportunities to use mathematical skills learned, and make links with everyday situations.

History and Geography

Pupils develop knowledge and understanding of their world focusing on topics linked to their own neighbourhood and to their family history leading to topics such as the first humans, western Asia and Egypt, India and China and Ancient Greece. 

Geography education inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people and we believe this will remain with our pupils for the rest of their lives.  We study places in the world like Brazil and India enabling children to widen their knowledge of other places and make comparisons.


Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity.  We believe that music education must engage and inspire pupils to develop a love for music.  It should encourage their talents as musicians and increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.


Music is evident in our assemblies and in our topics, and through music we celebrate different cultural events and festivals.

Art Education

Art is a real strength at TUIS and a huge contributor to the children’s development.  We encourage appreciation of art in any form, from Monet’s paintings to sculptures by Henry Moore, including art from other cultures.  We simply love being creative and this makes our school a great place to be.


Physical Education

Physical Education is high on our agenda.  The Physical Education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities focusing on specific developmental skills and attitudes.  Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness, respect and team work.  We have an excellent new sports hall but we do not have a swimming pool so we are unable to offer swimming lessons.
