The Curriculum

We boast a bespoke future-focused Bassett Baccalaureate curriculum, taught by specialists for the best outcomes, where much-loved traditions meet innovation – a curriculum crammed with creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration.

Games & The Arts

Our specialist PE and sports teachers encourage pupils to try a host of activities and games from introduction to team sports. Music, drama and art are also taught by specialist teachers and allow for pupils to express themselves with confidence across a spectrum of media.

Pastoral Care

Bassett House has a homely feel – where parents say their child is more nurtured, known and seen. We consider it a privilege to educate children in our academic school with small class sizes and expert staff committed to making learning memorable. Happy children learn.  When pupils join Bassett in our pre-school, they receive their very own Pastoral Plan from our Pastoral Lead. Communication Station supports pupils who need a boost.
