A broad and balanced curriculum alongside a wealth of wide ranging extra curricular activities offers children opportunities to represent the school, challenge themselves, develop new skills and talents and make a valued contribution. The upper junior children enjoy a residential activity holiday each year, choirs enter both national and local competitions and events and annual school productions showcase the high standards that can be achieved by young children. Our sports teams compete in the local leagues and against other small independent schools.
Whole school study weeks not only reinforce our sense of community but provide opportunities for children to cooperate and support one another. Each year whole school, cross curricular weeks are planned around, amongst other things, being a healthy school, sharing and enjoying books, studying major World Religions and supporting our adopted children’s charity Mission Together.
Standardised tests give parents reliable and objective methods of tracking progress. Good behaviour is expected but we take a positive and pro-active approach by praising and rewarding children who behave well, demonstrate a sensible attitude and show consideration towards others. Parents are kept fully informed throughout the year and standardised tests provide them with reliable and objective methods of tracking progress.
Children who join our junior department always settle quickly and enjoy the challenges and new friendships made available to them. Here, our children are thoroughly prepared both socially and academically for entry into the senior school of their choice.
