Our Primary Curriculum
In the primary years, we use the best of the National Curriculum but are free to enhance what it offers by giving greater emphasis to basics such as good grammar and learning times tables. We use the Read, Write Inc. Phonics programme which progresses to ‘literacy and language’ lessons. We are in the process of updating our curriculum to the Cornerstones Curriculum- this will give children a varied, thematic approach to their learning which will encourage them to identify links across a number of subject areas.
Students are supported to make a seamless transition to our senior school as the primary curriculum includes a range of lessons taught by specialists from the senior school, for example in French, music, science, and P.E.
Our detailed curriculum plans are regularly updated and are available upon request.
