Junior School

Co-educational, new entrant to Year 3

Junior SchoolThe first years of school are crucial for laying the foundations for a life-long love of learning.

 

At the Junior School we inspire young people to learn within a happy, secure and caring atmosphere where each child’s strengths are allowed to develop to their fullest. We give children the opportunity, encouragement and skills to achieve their personal best in all aspects of the school curriculum, and to contribute towards their development as confident, happy members of the school community.

Our small classes mean we are able to foster self-esteem through emphasising and rewarding high standards of achievement, presentation and behaviour, and there are various opportunities for learning-extension and learning-support programmes, music and speech lessons, and extra-curricular activities.

The emphasis is on competence in all areas of the curriculum and preparing pupils for the Girls’ and Boys’ Schools. Class teachers teach the core classroom subjects, while specialist teachers take music, art, and physical education, with an emphasis on fine motor-skill development. Additionally, there is help for those pupils with learning support needs and extension for pupils who would benefit from a broader range of activities.
