We are a small friendly school, where girls can be guided individually to reach their potential. We are proud that our Junior School is so involved with the life of the Main School; the girls benefit enormously from contact with Senior pupils, who act as monitors, club leaders and helpers on buses. Our girls also enjoy all the benefits of the whole school’s facilities and specialist teachers.
We welcome pupils into Year 3 (Transition), with additional places available in Year 4 (Form I). A small number of places may be available for Year 5 (Lower II) and Year 6 (Upper II). Most Junior girls progress to our Senior School and are confident to meet the challenges of this next step in their educational journey. Junior School Admissions
Staff are always willing to give extra time to girls with specific queries and are always supportive and caring. The special needs of any individual can be recognised and provided for in our small, close-knit school. Girls finding difficulties in any area are helped and the gifted and talented are further stimulated. Information passes to the Senior School to enable all staff to have a full picture of every girl at each stage of development.
There is a lively programme of events for parents to attend throughout the year, ranging from music to drama and sport. Regular parents’ evenings and end-of-term reports keep you in touch with your daughter’s progress but parents are welcome in school, by appointment, at any time to discuss concerns.
