Exploration and evaluation (Year 1 and Year 2)

In Primary School, we engage a more structured approach to the school day. Primary Years educators aim to help students build upon learning in the Early Years programme and embed deeper learning for reading, writing and mathematics. Students will still be encouraged to explore and play, but they will also be able to describe their discoveries in words and numbers.)

A more structured approach to the day helps children to learn how to read, write and count in English. We still encourage children to explore and play, but also to describe their discoveries in words and numbers.

Communicate and articulate

Children are naturally curious. In Primary School, we encourage them to learn about things that interest them, while consolidating their numeracy and literacy skills. We teach children how to apply these basic skills to other subject areas – such as Science, Art and History.


Nurturing Creative, Inquiring Minds

Our aim is for children in Key Stage 1 to enjoy their time at school and develop knowledge, understanding, and values in order to reach their full potential in academic and social skills.

Key stage 1: Year 1 (ages 5-6) and Year 2 (ages 6-7)

The work of each year group is guided by the appropriate level of the English National Curriculum, Key Stage 1, which is by nature broad and balanced. Subject areas include English Language, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Design and Technology, Art and Craft, Music, Physical Education, Health Education, Religious Education, and Information Technology.

In Language and Literacy, we aim to provide a rich and stimulating environment in which children find interest and pleasure in communicating in English. They are offered many experiences to develop their interest in reading with fluency, accuracy, understanding and enjoyment. The development of handwriting skills forms an important part of Language and Literacy.

In Mathematics and Science, we aim to develop a knowledge and understanding of the role of these subjects in everyday life. Children are encouraged to relate their Mathematics and Science work to other areas of the curriculum and the skills and attitudes acquired are important components of cross-curricular topic work.


Communicate and articulate (Years 3 to 6)

As children are naturally curious in our Primary School, students are encouraged to learn about things that interest them while consolidating their numeracy and literacy skills; learning how to apply these basic skills to other subject areas, such as Science, Art and History.

Key Stage 2: Years 3 to 6 (age 7-11)


As children grow, we provide them with the educational experiences that develop a positive approach to learning by cultivating an environment that is enhanced by making the child feel at home while at school.

All intellectual development is based upon reasoning, creativity, and judgment, along with a certain amount of memorisation of key concepts. In the Primary department, our Key Stage 2 pupils are introduced to a comprehensive programme of lessons that encourages them to apply these fundamental skills to four core subject areas: English, Maths, Science, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology), in addition to sports and creative & performing arts. 

Children learn faster and more effectively when skills and concepts are applied across a range of different subjects and when knowledge learned in one area can be made relevant and applied to another.

We do this in a challenging intellectual and academic environment. Creativity in the sciences and humanities is explored with a structured process for learning about, and exploring new ideas. Inspirational and caring teachers make this an exciting and stimulating time for pupils as they learn the importance of cultivating individual study skills, as well as the benefits of sharing skills and ideas during teamwork.


Core Subjects



English Literacy

In addition to reading and writing, literacy involves the development of speaking and listening skills which learners gain through writing in different forms.




Numeracy is developed as a key to understanding other subjects, as well offering a fascinating universal language.




From sketching observational drawings to conducting simple experiments, the fundamentals of the scientific process are clearly established, and allow learners to think about possible outcomes and the process of change.
