Head of Primary's Welcome
This tall, well-equipped, four-floor building was previously used as a boarding school, but we converted it into a specialist primary site in 2010. It is a centre dedicated to Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes within the English National Curriculum.
There are three classes each of Year 1 to Year 4 pupils. The teachers are UK qualified and experienced practitioners, plus we have Spanish qualified and trained staff who offer the obligatory Spanish language and humanities courses to our pupils. There are three full-time teaching assistants who are based between the Year 1 and Year 2 classes, and there are three full-time support teachers who are timetabled to offer programmes of support or extension work to selected small groups of pupils from any of the twelve classes based in this building. The section is led by our Deputy Head of Primary.
The children receive two lessons per week of music from one of our two full-time music specialists, and each class receives two computing classes per week with our ‘digital learning lead’, working alongside the class teacher in the specialist IT suite or using iPads in the classroom. Physical education lessons are offered in a rented sports facility which is 100m away from the school gates.
The enrichment programme offered to our primary children is as important as it is varied: exciting trips; collapse curriculum days; concerts; assemblies; tournaments for the older pupils; after school extra-curricular activities.
