Junior School

Junior School

The Junior School runs a skills-based curriculum. What this means in practice is that the focus of lessons is far more on 'how to do' rather than factual learning.

This is crucial in bringing boys' literacy and numeracy skills up to speed and hence why we have twice as many English and Maths lessons as a standard prep school would for all our juniors, coupled with having two teachers in each class for these key subjects.

Historically it is so often these core skills that have hindered boys from both comprehending the work being studied and showing their potential.

On top of these two subjects boys are taught, Science, Geography, History, Religious Studies, French, PSHCE, Music, Design and Technology and Art to give breadth and variety to their curriculum.
