School Life

Our pupils move seamlessly from Lower to Middle and Upper School and there are two classes in each year group with no more than 20 pupils in each class.

The school day begins with registration at 8.45am and finishes at 3.30pm for Reception to Year 2, 3.45pm for Years 3 to 5 and 4pm for all other year groups. A freshly-prepared health and nutritious lunch is provided by our chef and his team. There are many before and after school clubs and activities that extend the school day.

The day is structured to provide a balanced mix of academic, physical and creative experiences. We increase the homework assignments from Year 3 to encourage the pupils to work independently and to reinforce their learning.
Lower School pupils develop very close relationships with their form teachers, who are responsible for their day-to-day welfare, academic progress and social development. The School Council meets regularly to represent the children’s views.

Our inclusive sports programme ensures that all pupils are included in a wide variety of sports activities. This helps them to develop healthy lifestyles and to value teamwork. The sports teams that represent our school achieve regular local, regional and national success.
