Ages 11 - 18
Key Stage 1 Curriculum
Years 1 & 2: ages 5 - 7
"Throughout the school, lessons are characterised by lively and enthusiastic teaching and skilled questioning techniques." ISI Report 2016
In some instances, subjects are taught through a 'cross-curricular' approach. For example, the topic 'Houses and Homes' would incorporate subjects such as history, geography, technology and science. Learning must be enjoyable and we want to instil in the girls an excitement and love of learning from an early age so that they develop into independent, enthusiastic learners.
"Pupils demonstrate an intellectual curiosity and a love of learning." ISI Report 2016
Classroom-based learning is enhanced by opportunities to 'learn by doing' either by inviting professionals to the school to run workshops, such as well-known authors or artists, or by going on trips to places of interest, including London-based museums and galleries.
We place great emphasis on the development and use of ICT skills in all subjects and the girls have regular access to the modern network of flatscreen computers.
"Pupils have a strong grasp of mathematics and are skilled in using ICT." ISI Report 2016
