Academic

Our traditional academic curriculum is delivered through superb teaching, first-rate IT facilities and modern approaches to learning. Small class sizes, a committed teaching staff and an emphasis on academic excellence enable girls to set themselves high standards in everything they do. Teaching is tailored to girls’ particular strengths and abilities, every classroom has an interactive white board and subject specialist teaching increases as our girls progress through the school.

Our girls are given a thorough grounding in literacy and numeracy leading to the study of discrete subjects such as English, mathematics, science, computing, religious education, history, geography, French and Mandarin. These are enhanced by music, drama, art and physical education at every age.

Outside the classroom, there are numerous opportunities for children to enjoy performing in assemblies, recital evenings, plays and concerts. Lots of girls take advantage of individual music and drama lessons with peripatetic teachers.

Through timetabled PSHEE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) and regular sessions with their form teacher, children learn how to be active inhabitants of the changing world in which we live, appreciating social issues and responsibilities.

We prepare girls not just for senior school, but for life and the demands of the 21st century. Our pupils are assessed regularly and internally in the core subjects of English, maths and science, leading eventually to preparation for their choice of senior school through the 11+ Consortium exams, Common Entrance exams and scholarship papers.
