Key Stage 2
Years 3 – 6
From Year 3 pupils follow a more structured timetable with the majority of subjects taught by specialist teachers in specialist classrooms. The Design Technology and Art Room, Computing Suite, Music Centre and Science Laboratory are fully equipped with everything pupils need to facilitate a fast pace to their learning. All pupils enjoy a comprehensive sporting programme, including curriculum and competition swimming at our Senior School 25m pool.
In Year 6, ‘Q’ (Questioning) lessons are introduced to the timetable. In these sessions, pupils explore how they learn best as individuals and establish strategies and techniques to assist independent study, reasoning skills, revision and examination techniques. This helps them prepare for senior school education as well as for entrance examinations. Pupils develop self-confidence through taking part in productions, concerts and sports events and leading School assemblies.
Whilst the national curriculum for Key Stage 2 provides the foundation for our Junior curriculum we go far beyond national curriculum recommendations and achieve standards which exceed national expectations.
