Setting

The children are placed in sets for mathematics from Year 3 onwards to enable each girl to be taught at a level appropriate to her ability in this vital area of the curriculum.  Other subjects are taught within the mixed-ability classes.

Planning for different strengths and abilities lies at the heart of our teaching ethos at the Lower School. Respect and understanding for individual learning styles is key. Staff aim to ignite a love of learning and offer inclusive access to the curriculum for all pupils by knowing individual pupils well. Differentiation, challenge, pace, stretch, support and fun combine to enable lessons that are stimulating and show progress and understanding.
