Academic

Our curriculum challenges learners of all abilities to achieve more than they believed possible.

We pride ourselves on our ability to stretch and motivate every child, inspiring a sense of curiosity and encouraging a mind-set which embraces challenge. Learners of a broadly average standard and above are well served with our Gifted, Talented and Interested programme of engaging curricular and character-defining activities to extend areas of strength.

Equally, the support of a designated SENCO and Assistant SENCO, as well as a highly-qualified team of visiting specialist staff, who cover needs in literacy, numeracy, English as an Additional Language and many other areas is in accordance with our commitment to enabling every child to fulfil their potential.

We aim to prepare our children for a smooth transfer to senior school at the end of Year Six. Our creative curriculum is underpinned by the objectives of the National Curriculum as a minimum requirement but is extended by drawing upon elements of the Independent Schools’ Curriculum and the passions of our specialist teachers. Teaching is predominantly in mixed ability classes although ability setting in mathematics and elements of English also allow the children to progress at an appropriate rate.

Specialist staff for modern foreign languages, PE and games, music and technology complement our excellent class teaching team and ensure that our rounded academic provision is of the highest quality.
