Keystage

Well equipped, internet linked classrooms with use of interactive whiteboards help to create an environment that encourages pupils to challenge themselves. Additional specialist subjects such as French, music, science, computing, PE and speech and drama are added to the children’s weekly curriculum.

Small class sizes assist in the objective of stimulating enquiring minds and support the development of self-reliance. Mathematics and English remain priority subjects, with children attending daily lessons and sitting weekly spelling and numeracy tests based on tables and mathematical language. Homework and reading assignments are set for every evening and weekend during the term.
