Main School

We foster independence and high levels of academic achievement starting in Pre-Prep and going through to Prep 6. The children develop the confidence to investigate and enquire, to solve problems and to take responsibility for their own learning. We aim to enrich their learning experiences, broadening their social horizons and their cultural interests. The children develop a work ethic that stands them in great stead for their future lives.

At the same time we provide the essential nurturing that young children need to build their confidence and the happiness and well-being of our pupils lies at the heart of all we do. Their sense of belonging is fostered by daily contact with a trusted class teacher who will help the children in his or her care as they grow in understanding of themselves, each other and the world. We want our pupils to be tolerant of each other, respectful of adults, but above all, safe and secure.

Our curriculum is planned around specific learning objectives for every subject area within each year group. The subjects taught in the Main School are English, Mathematics, Science, French, History, Geography, Religious Education, Music, Art, Design and Technology, Computing, Physical Education and Personal, Social and Health Education. Specialist teaching takes place in PE and Music.
