Reception to Year 4
We adopt a creative, yet personalised, approach to education allowing each child to flourish and to enjoy their learning. Getting to know our children and families allows us to use topics that the children are interested in, to tailor activities inside and outside of the classroom and to provide opportunities that further develop interests and strengths.
Year 5 to Year 8
The giant steps from Primary to Secondary education are smoothed to a gentle ascent in Middle School. Pupils are supported both in and out of the classroom.

Through the development of essential life skills and access to a wide range of extracurricular activities, the Upper School provides every pupil with a blend of challenge, discovery and enjoyment. In turn, this furnishes pupils with confidence and ambition for life, the foundations for success.
