Between the ages of 5 and 11, we focus on developing the whole person using an individualised and personalised approach. We help them develop high levels of self-esteem, problem-solving skills and a sense of pride in all they do. 

Academic approach

Our Primary section spans from Year 1 to Year 6, with six classes in each year and an average class size of 22. With one English teacher, one Spanish teacher and one assistant in each class, pupils receive individual support and guidance to nurture their abilities and talents. Our well-rounded approach prepares pupils for the challenges of Secondary and beyond. 

Our academic results are excellent, and being part of various school communities, including family groups, means pupils also flourish emotionally and socially. To measure the performance and progress of our students, our Primary students take Standardised Assessment Tests (SATs) and National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) tests, allowing us to check the excellent progress pupils make each year in areas such as reading, comprehension and mathematics. 

All classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards to improve teaching and learning experiences, and all students have access to mini laptops, an IT lab and WiFi technology.
