We aim to create an atmosphere where to excel is not just acceptable, it’s cool! Our Able Child programme identifies the most able children in each subject area, every year, using class performance and test scores, and ensures that they are given extension activities that will challenge and stimulate them. In addition, we offer targeted acceleration through our scholarship and 11plus workshops.
We also recognise that not everyone learns at the same pace or in the same way. Experienced staff in our Learning Centre provide individual support to help children who are struggling with literacy or numeracy as well as helping them in the classroom so that they can take part in a full and rich curriculum. We see learning differences as temporary stumbling blocks rather than barriers, and we encourage all our children to aim high.
We see education as a partnership between school and home, and keep parents regularly informed about their child’s progress through termly and half-termly reports, year group reviews and twice-yearly parent teacher meetings, as well as informal feedback.
