Our Lower School, encompassing Year One, Year Two and Year Three is a hub of purposeful activity.
During their time in the Lower School, every girl is securing the skills to become a confident and independent learner, ready for life in our Upper School. From Year 1, we encourage the pupils to organise and to think for themselves. This is supported through the use of resources and prompts e.g. a book mark of the different kit needed on each day. As they move through the Lower School we support the children in their transitions between year groups, ensuring that by the time they leave the Lower School, they feel part of a thriving school community in which their individuality is cherished.
The girls are taught by a class teacher and lessons take place through a collaboration of whole class learning and small group work. We focus on the varying needs of individual children, ensuring that all girls are appropriately challenged and supported to achieve their very best.
We teach the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science, as well as the Humanities and the Arts. Music, Physical Education, French, Drama and Computing are taught by specialist teachers.
Our busy year encompasses highlights such as school trips, Design and Technology Days, the Lower School Play, French day, the Easter Bonnet parade and Sports Day. At the end of Year 3 the pupils will attend their first school residential.
