Learning and Teaching at Juniors

As well as a strong focus on academic subjects such as English, Mathematics and Science, our students are given a creative and rich curriculum with specialist teachers in Languages, Music, Drama, ICT and Art. We encourage our pupils to be innovative and inquisitive. We want the pupils to be engaged and we believe this enables them to make the maximum progress possible.

The Gifted and Talented Coordinator in the Juniors ensures that we stretch and challenge appropriately. Similarly, those pupils who need additional support are given the option of one-to-one tuition, or specialist dyslexia tuition.

All pupils in Year 6 are expected to move automatically into our Seniors. They take the 11+ examination with external candidates, which provides them with a valuable experience and helps us to place them appropriately when setting. Junior pupils also have the opportunity to apply for senior scholarships, which are awarded for academic ability, music, sport or creative and performing arts.
