The Curriculum

Specialist teaching: music and PE from Reception; French from Year 2 and from Year 4 in all subjects including science, art and DT in our purpose built facilities. Verbal and non-verbal reasoning lessons are introduced in Year 4 in preparation for 11+ examinations.

Games & The Arts

Major sports are football, rugby and cricket. All boys have weekly swimming lessons in our indoor pool. In Year 3 all boys get to play in their first competitive sports fixture. There are lots of plays and musical groups to get involved in using our 130 seat theatre and music rooms.

Pastoral Care

Boys in Reception and Year 1 are taught in our separate pre-prep building allowing them to settle quickly and easily into school routines. In Years 2 and 3 boys remain with their class teacher for the majority of lessons. In Year 4 boys become more independent. They have a form tutor who is responsible for their day-to-day care but they start to move around the school for their lessons. In preparation for 11+ Year 6 boys will have a mentor, a member of staff in addition to their form tutor.

Recent Scholarships

Hampton, Reed’s, St Paul’s, KCS Wimbledon, Whitgift and St George’s.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy
