The first years of education are a voyage of discovery – exploring, questioning, having a go and getting a thrill from every achievement.

Children can join us from the term they turn three, with a dedicated pre-Kindergarten class for our youngest learners aged two. Our dedicated Early Years setting, including the brand new 'Beehive', offers an inspiring and safe space for Kindergarten and Reception classes as they embark on their learning journeys, benefiting from our approach to education.

Our Learning Wheel

Knowledge versus skills? The debate goes on and on – but we believe that it isn't a choice between one or the other.  

Our Learning Wheel places the pupil at its core, is holistic and integrates the key areas of knowledge and understanding with thinking skills and learning characteristics.

    Outer circle

    We prepare young people to blaze a trail in whatever field they choose. They leave us equipped with a breadth of skills, ready to become responsible global citizens.

    Learning Segment

    We group our subjects together into six curriculum areas. We teach subjects in an integrated way, because the future belongs to those who can think way beyond narrow subject boundaries.

    Learning to think

    Education is not just about imparting knowledge. It’s about teaching young people how to think for themselves: critically, creatively and collaboratively.

    Developing Character

    Fostering a secure bedrock of self-esteem and a sure moral compass is essential preparation for a future in a complex world.

    Our Learners

    Our schools are small enough to ensure that each learner is known. By placing our learners at the centre of our approach, we create an education that allows individuality to flourish.

Our approach 

We work closely with parents, sharing each child’s experiences to build a complete picture of his or her skills and to see how, together, we can help them progress.

"Pupils achieve at a high level and make excellent progress ... They develop an enjoyment for learning ... pupils feel motivated and enthusiastic."
