Early years

Starting school is a big step and we welcome children from age of 2 into our nurturing and family environment. Children are taught the Early Years educational curriculum by fully qualified teachers along with lessons in French, Music, PE, Drama and Outdoor Learning. They develop new skills and flourish within the safe and stimulating surroundings of the Early Years setting, where they grow in confidence ready to move up into Year 1.

Moving through the school

We offer a challenging and varied curriculum, within extensive sports fields and specialist rooms. We are a two form entry, with small class sizes which allow for all children to learn as individuals and involve themselves in the extensive range of opportunities on offer. Academic success is reflected in our examination results, with children attaining above national average and being awarded many scholarships at their chosen senior schools.
