By fostering the positive values of care and co-operation, we provide a secure base for children’s education. Children of all abilities, colour and race are treated equally and encouraged to pursue excellence. The school policy for Race Equality confirms this commitment.

We are concerned with the quality of the efforts of the pupils in achieving high standards in all areas of the curriculum, their social relationships and their attitude towards the environment in which they work.


The school aims are threefold:

  • A high quality of education for every child.
  • Care and concern for every member of the community.
  • Opportunities for pupils, staff and parents to become involved


The school is organised into 4 main groups: Year 5, Years 6 and 7 (Middle Years) and Year 8.

In Year 5 the group is largely self– sufficient and your child will, for the most part, be under the care of their form tutor aided by specialist teachers whenever necessary.

Pupils with special educational needs will be given additional support as identified by the SEN Code of Practice.

In Years 6 and 7, the Middle Years, there is a gradual transition to match your child’s development. There will be a move from formbased teaching to learning with specialist staff in designated areas.

By Year 8, your child will encounter mainly subject orientated teaching in preparation for his/ her transition to the Upper School.

The children are taught in either mixed ability groups or sets according to subject and year group. English and Mathematics are set in all Years; French is grouped according to ability in Years 7 and 8 and at KS3 extension sets operate in DT and Science.


The National Curriculum prescribes a curriculum that is relevant, broad and balanced and it is broken down into the following categories:

the core subjects: English, Mathematics, Science and ICT.

the foundation subjects: Design, History, Geography, Music, Art, PE and a modern foreign language.

In addition it is a legal requirement for all schools to embrace Citizenship. Religious Education is taught to all pupils. The school’s curriculum also includes aspects of Personal, Social and Health Education.


An integral part of the curriculum has been the opportunity for pupils to participate in a variety of day visits and residential courses. Extra-curricular activities form an important part of school life and staff and associates of the school are prepared to offer a wide range of opportunities for the pupils.

The comprehensive programme varies each term and is published at the beginning of each term. Timings could be during the lunch hour or after school. Clubs operating in the past have incorporated sporting, cultural, religious and social pursuits.
