We constantly look to improve and innovate in our curriculum, and have recently introduced an exciting enrichment programme. Running on Saturday mornings throughout the school (but compulsory for years 6-8), this enables children to explore a range of creative and personal development subjects outside the constraints of academic learning such as photography, philosophy and cookery as well as outdoor activities.
As our children grow into teenagers, the close community we provide at FSM creates a safe haven, but one which encourages them to spread their wings and take on new responsibilities. Our year 8 children become part of our ‘Fiendishly Sensitive Mentoring’ scheme which pairs them with three or four children in years 3-6, receiving training with the Deputy Head to ensure they know when issues should be escalated to an adult. They also take on leadership roles as prefects, captains of our sports teams and within the boarding house.
