The Lower School introduces your daughter to a wider programme of learning and provides her with opportunities to discover where her own natural talents and abilities lie.
Pupils enter the Lower School (Years 3 - 4) aged seven, either from Pre-Prep or from their Junior School.
There are up to two classes in each year, each with a Form Teacher who teaches at least one subject to their own class. In Year 3 the pupils have their Form Teacher up to 60% of the academic time. In Year 4 we introduce an increasing number of subject specialists.
All three years provide a broad and balanced curriculum of Maths, English, Science, History, Geography, RE, ICT, Food Technology, Music, Art and Design, PE, Swimming and Games.
Through our Year 3 Music Scheme we encourage pupils to take up an instrument and sing in a choir. We also view sport as integral to a good education, and teams of all ages and many levels take part in inter-school fixtures in netball, rounders, cross country, swimming and athletics.
Parents can meet their child's teachers and discuss any issues at parents' evenings which are held twice a year. They are also invited to the classrooms to view their children's work on a regular basis. In addition, teachers are always available for formal or informal meetings to discuss their child's progress.
