Junior Curriculum

Building the foundations for excellence.

The curriculum in the Junior School lays the foundations for future learning by providing a deep and thorough basis in core subjects which are then enriched with a broad, imaginative and exciting range of specialist subjects.

Each term, children have a theme for their learning, which crosses across subject areas, which means they are fully immersed in the topic whether they are in an English lesson or a Geography lesson. We enrich our curriculum with trips, visits, speakers and theatre productions that bring our classroom learning to life.

Pupils in the Junior School will study:

Junior Results.

In the Junior School, children achieve excellent results in their annual assessments. We use GL Tests which include Progress Tests in English and Maths, as well as CAT 4 tests which enable us to see more holistically what a child is capable of and where they have the potential to achieve more.
