Curriculum

We know that children excel academically when they are inspired to learn. Our curriculum is delivered through a range of exciting and engaging topics and built upon a progressive ladder of skills. We pride ourselves on teaching lessons which aim for academic excellence at all times.

From Pre-Reception onwards, our curriculum is enriched by specialist subject teachers for Mathematics, French, Information Communication Technology, Latin, Drama, Music, Physical Education and Dance.  Their expert knowledge and passion for their subjects greatly enhance the children’s learning experience.

 

An Entrance Examination Programme is built into the curriculum in Key Stage 2, which introduces pupils to verbal reasoning skills and prepares them for the New Hall Senior School entrance examination, the 11+ examination and for scholarships. 

Small class sizes of around 20, differentiated lessons and sets in Years 5 and 6 for English and Years 3 to 6 for Mathematics, ensure that pupils are appropriately challenged and make exceptional progress.  This is evidenced by our high Foundation Stage results and SATs results, which are consistently above government expectations for the given age ranges.
