The aim of our school is to give your child the chance to achieve in all areas. We teach independence and resilience, alongside academic excellence, whilst encouraging children to be responsible members of our society.
Our goal is to provide academic teaching and learning to the highest quality, we encourage children to participate in the wide range of cultural, sporting and extra-curricular activities available at our school, to widen knowledge and interests ensuring the skill of teamwork is taught from a young age.
The curriculum for all year groups includes: English, Mathematics, Science, Art, Design and Technology, Humanities, Computing, Modern Languages, Music, Physical Education, Games, Religious Studies and Personal Social Citizenship and Health Education.
Homework is set every day, ranging from 30 minutes in Year 3 to 45 minutes in Year 6. Parents receive reports twice a year and are invited to attend two Parents’ Evenings to discuss their child’s progress.
Over 50% of the timetable in Key Stage 2 is taught by the Form Tutor. The remainder is taught by Specialist Teachers. We believe this is the ideal combination. It provides a stable classroom environment for younger pupils, and the older children have the added stimulation of specialist teaching (from Senior School teachers as well) to prepare them for the Senior School timetable.
Physical Education and Games are taught by fully qualified male and female sports teachers. Many Music specialists visit the school to teach instrumental lessons, help with Music classes and support orchestras, choirs and ensembles.
