The Core

CURRICULUM

story behind curriculum

The A&J School Core Curriculum was developed by our Founder, Sunny Jain. Sunny recognised that many young people leave schools completely unprepared for the challenges ahead of them. He was one of them. Sunny found that the most useful skills that helped him in his professional and personal life were learnt through trial and error. The Core Curriculum exists to give our students the essential life skills in a structured way. This ensures that by the time our students graduate from A&J School at the age of 18, they have everything they need to make speedy progress in their lives and to advance quickly towards their personal and professional goals.
