Our Junior School is full of life, imagination and laughter. Each child is known, and nurtured (KAN). We passionately believe that happy children thrive; every child’s well-being is always our first priority. We work hard to develop a strong home-school partnership and excellent communication.
With an inspiring, creative and dynamic curriculum, children are supported and challenged at every stage of their learning journey. At the heart of all we do, we foster a love of learning, nurturing enquiring minds and stimulating excitement in the world around us. Building resilience and developing an aptitude to be solution-focused rather than problem-driven, we are preparing children for the future that is not yet known.
Our highly-qualified, passionate and enthusiastic teachers engage children in a curriculum which is truly relevant to them. We seek to inspire and nurture talents which enable children to flourish and we are ambitious for their outcomes. We pride ourselves on the consistency of our approach and excellent level of pastoral care.
The building itself was originally a large Victorian home and it still retains a welcoming feel contributing to the secure, family atmosphere central to the character of the School. Children benefit from being taught in small form groups throughout their time in the Junior School, with the added benefit of specialist teachers for Science, Design & Technology, French, Spanish, Music and Physical Education. As part of our ongoing preparation for Senior School, Year 6 spend time in our Senior School buildings being taught Science in the laboratory and PE lessons on the AstroTurf tennis and netball courts.

Our town centre location means that we are able to make the most of what the local area has to offer; from beach visits to exploring the exhibitions and galleries. With a fleet of minibuses and being but a 10 minute walk from the station enables children to benefit from a range of exciting opportunities, carefully planned to further enrich the curriculum.
