Primary School

The Formative Years

“…we hope to have helped to develop a student with a good character, the ability to articulate themselves clearly, confidence in their abilities, a broad world view and all the skills they need to embark on their secondary education.”

Key Stage 2 & Key Stage 3

This is the learning period we also describe as “middle school”. Our middle school students will build on the foundations laid by their Foundation and Key Stage 1 years with increasingly advanced teaching which focuses on:

  • Measuring achievement
  • Encouraging initiative
  • Teaching core subjects
  • Introducing languages
  • Enhancing creativity & social skills
  • Engaging in extra-curricular activities
  • Developing IT skills
  • Nurturing leadership qualities

By the time your child has reached year 6, the final year of Key Stage 2, we hope to have helped to develop a student with a good character, the ability to articulate themselves clearly, confidence in their abilities, a broad world view and all the skills they need to embark on their secondary education.

This secondary education begins in year 7, Key Stage 3. At this stage, your child will begin studying familiar subjects in more depth. The Key Stage 3 curriculum includes: English language, English literature, mathematics, history, geography, religion, the sciences, computer science, a selection of second languages, art and design, physical education (PE) and personal, social and health education.
