The elementary school builds on the foundation in the pre-school to establish numeracy and literacy skills in the pupils. Pupils are also equipped to work successfully both independently and in groups. Premier international school runs an integrated curriculum comprising of the Nigerian Basic Education curriculum, the UK National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). Pupils sit for the Cambridge Checkpoint exam in Year 6. This international curriculum enriches the students in their cognitive and socio-emotional development and gives them a global perspective.

Throughout the primary years, the aim is to achieve effectiveness in the core skills of reading, oral and written communication and dexterity with numbers. These are of prime importance and without which further progress can be inhibited. Through topics, themes and projects the pupils are also introduced to the world around them and trained in the understanding of life in its many and varied aspects. Using internationally accepted best practice, children are taught to inquire, to use and apply skills learned. The integration of these international curricula enable our pupils to sit for such international examinations as primary checkpoint, elementary science and math Olympiad at upper elementary level.
