All children follow a common curriculum in the Core Subjects (English, Maths and Science) supported by Foundation subjects, History, Geography, Art, Music, P.E. Design Technology, Information & Communication Technology and R.E.
Emphasis is placed on the value of practical experience in these subjects particularly with young children, to ensure that they have a sound understanding of the concepts involved. Sometimes children appear to learn more quickly by rote, but we find that subsequent progress becomes increasingly slow and difficult. In this way, children who progress more quickly are able to go well beyond normal primary school work, whilst ensuring that other children can spend sufficient time at each stage to grasp concepts fully.
As children go through school, they will be given increased responsibility with their work and will be encouraged to take work home.
