Primary (Year 1 - Year 5)

Learning in the Junior Department is based around the Cornerstones curriculum which is designed to be engaging and interactive. 

National Curriculum content is covered, but we believe that a school should add more to a child’s education. Our pupils receive lessons in ballet, learn to play a musical instrument and are taught touch-typing, to broaden their skills and opportunities. 

Pupils in Years 1-5 are taught mainly by their class teacher.  Some subjects will be taught by different teachers, to give pupils a wider experience of teaching styles and expertise.  

In the summer term, girls in Year 5 also benefit from lessons in the Senior School to help to prepare them for the move for Year 6. 

Topics taught in Year 1 to Year 5 have included:

  • Beachcombers 
  • Blue Abyss 
  • Bright Lights, Big City
  • Flow
  • Gods and Mortals 
  • Memory Box 
  • Misty Mountain Sierra 
  • Paws, Claws and Whiskers
  • Wriggle and Crawl 

We carefully select the topics to ensure curriculum coverage and variety, whilst planning for skill development and knowledge acquisition.
