Experienced Teaching Team

Our experienced Early Years Team and Junior School staff work to ensure that all children feel secure and valued as they settle into school life. Pupils are encouraged to develop independence and reach their potential through enjoyable activities. 

We recognise that each child is unique. Our activities are planned in response to observing the children’s needs and interests. This highly individualised approach to teaching enables each child to develop at their own pace. By drawing out each child’s natural curiosity and basing our activities on their enthusiasms and interests, we inspire excitement for learning.
