CHILDREN JOIN THE LOWER SCHOOL FOR YEARS 1 TO 4. KEY STAGE ONE IS YEAR 1 AND 2, WHILST YEAR 3 & 4 ACCESS THE KEY STAGE TWO NATIONAL CURRICULUM OF ENGLAND AND WALES.
In the Lower School, care and emotional security are essential to early childhood education.
We aim to:
- Create an atmosphere in which the children are keen to learn and eager to progress at the right pace, growing steadily more independent.
- Nurture each child’s primary years to be full of happiness.
- Recognise each child’s unique abilities and needs and provide the best possible opportunities to develop them.
Learning is not just classroom based. We allow children to learn through exploration and with a truly holistic curriculum sport, art, music, drama, House events, involvement with charities and other extra-curricular activities are as important as our core subject-based lessons. We are dedicated to the all-round education of the individual and believe our Lower School equips the children with the confidence and skills to support a seamless transition to the Senior part of the school in Year 5.
