Welcome to Middle School
As your child enters Middle School, we encourage them to take more responsibility for their own learning and development. Having already introduced them to specialist subject teaching through Lower School, the transition during this important stage of their journey is smooth and untroubled. They have a strong sense of belonging to a supportive and close-knit family and their individuality is shining through. We take care to support them as they discover where their strengths and interests lie, culminating in their own choice of subjects when they reach the options stage in Year 8.
We ensure each child continues to develop essential core skills in literacy, numeracy and scientific investigation, reasoning and evaluation to a high standard, by following the requirements of the national curriculum, giving them a solid educational foundation for life inside and outside of school.
We ensure each child is encouraged to strive for excellence by providing them with a curriculum and enrichment programme carefully designed to inspire and develop the imagination, enabling them to identify where their strengths and interests lie.
We ensure the appropriate support is identified and put in place for each child to enable them to make the right academic and personal choices for their future and prepare for Key Stage 4.
From Year 5, your child will begin to enjoy the new experience of moving to specialist rooms for all their lessons. As an independent school, this is an opportunity that we can offer over and above what your child would normally receive and it helps them to build and sense of independence and organisational skills from an early age. The curriculum is designed to introduce more in depth study in each area, building on the solid foundations laid in Pre-pre and Lower School, to enable your child to make the right GCSE options decisions for them in Year 8.
I feel very thankful to be learning, socialising and having fun here in this lovely school
