Junior & Senior School
This stage consists of three core subjects Mathematics, English and Science together with Computing and the foundation subjects of Geography, History, Design Technology, Art, Music and Physical Education. In addition to these subjects, we also teach religion from Year 1 which continues through all Key Stages.
Children in Key Stage 1 are taught through a ‘topic approach’. During these first two years of Junior School life, students are encouraged to learn both practically and academically and all work is monitored to ensure that students are making the desired progress. We encourage children to take pride in their achievements and adopt an independent and self-reliant approach to school and particular attention is given to the social and emotional development of all children.
