The Key Stage Two unit was established five years ago and has proved to be a positive stepping off point to the Upper School. Students have an opportunity to immerse themselves in a thematically based curriculum with time and guidance to fill in any academic or social gaps. We are a caring unit promoting and encouraging co-operation, tolerance and self-discipline. We especially value creativity and imagination, and strive to give the children the best possible experience.
Throughout our curriculum and there is a strong emphasis on individual approaches to learning in all lessons. Daily reading, writing and mathematics lessons provide a secure basis to access the full curriculum. Topics are varied and aim to capture the imagination and interests of the students. We are lucky to be able to offer daily physical education and music too, including enjoying the outdoors environment with the wider key skills lessons.
As a unit we aim to provide a personal learning environment for all students where they will be constantly encouraged to meet new challenges and reach their full potential. We believe the broad curriculum with its emphasis on creativity, spiritual, physical and cultural development, as well as the acquisition of basic skills, to be suitable for all needs. Our focus is to help students to develop lifelong learning skills, independence and resilience, in a happy and secure environment.
We work collaboratively across the school and are committed to aiming high!
