Junior School

Our Junior School offers a challenging and creative curriculum to inspire our pupils to become problem-solvers and to take risks from early in their school careers. All our Junior School pupils gain automatic entry to the Senior School.

The Junior School curriculum is a creative one, where boys use their initiative and dare to take risks.

They receive a rich educational diet, released from the constraints of the National Curriculum. They are well schooled in all of the fundamentals, but bright boys need more than that. Through our skill-based activities, we can broaden the mind and develop natural inquisitiveness.

In Years 5 and 6 we have a strong and effective partnership with the Senior School, both in terms of shared facilities and specialist teaching. There is no examination preparation, as Junior School boys have automatic entry into the Senior School.

Our options programme (running for half a day each week) offers a variety of activities, ranging from robotics to developing the skills needed to become future business entrepreneurs. In Languages, we want boys to be confident in embarking upon new challenges. Hence we study Spanish in Year 3, French in Year 4, Latin in Year 5 and Italian in Year 6.
