Thus begins the transition from the Junior School to the Senior School where children are encouraged to take more responsibility for themselves and their learning. The core curriculum is vital and children begin to experience more subject based teaching aided by subject specialists. Smaller group work sessions in English and Maths begin in the first half of the academic year which encourages confidence and progress in key skills. Homework continues with 1 subject per night which should be completed within a twenty minute period. Most children have the opportunity to represent the school in our main sports of rugby, netball, football, swimming and cricket.
