Key Stage 2 curriculum

In Lower Key Stage Two (Years 3 and 4) pupils are taught the core subjects, English, maths and science, by their form tutor in their classroom. Pupils are grouped carefully, ensuring that clear differentiation and expectations match each pupil. Teaching is cross-curricular, based on a theme or topic and this is changed termly.  Teaching staff have excellent subject knowledge and teaching motivates, encourages and promotes learning. Activities are multi-sensory to cater for different learning styles.

In Upper Key Stage Two (Years 5 and 6) the girls are taught by subject specialist teachers in modern foreign languages, PE, swimming, music, computing and creative development. Maths is set by ability to enable the girls to be supported and extended according to their needs. Pupils are prepared for their transition to Senior School through their expanding and stimulating curriculum; they are encouraged to stretch themselves, develop their independence and take on additional responsibilities. The core and foundation subjects are enhanced by the provision of a variety of enrichment activities and educational visits that take them further afield and foster a curiosity about the world.
