We use the National Curriculum as the basis of our teaching but extend the girls and broaden their education in so many ways. Whilst having a Form teacher, who will provide pastoral support and teach the girls at least one subject, the girls are introduced to specialist teaching and the knowledge and passion of real enthusiasts in each subject. They will also rise to the challenges of following a timetable, organising themselves to have the right books and resources at the right time and being where they should be – all excellent preparation for senior schools.
French continues to be taught throughout the school and Mandarin is added from Year 4. We challenge the girls to think laterally and creatively and to use the knowledge they are gaining in new and different ways. Our state-of-the-art ICT suite, interactive whiteboards in every room and iPads accessing our VLE, Firefly, allow the girls access to the enormous range of resources available in school and on the internet and for teaching materials to be presented in innovative and attractive ways.
Our aim is to equip girls for a changing world. We want them to think confidently and creatively, to take calculated risks and not to be afraid of making mistakes on the way to success. We are preparing them for a world that requires courage, resilience and flexibility.
“Pupils demonstrate outstanding skills, knowledge and understanding across the range of subjects.”
