Welcome to Withington Junior School
Our Special Approach
Welcome to the Junior School at Withington Girls’ School.
Here our girls enjoy the warm and nurturing nature of a Junior School whilst also benefiting from our close links with the Senior School.
Small class sizes and a bright, purpose-built area within this wonderful school, make a first-class learning environment for your daughter.
Many subjects are delivered by our Junior School staff but girls also enjoy lessons taught by Senior School specialists for Music, PE, languages, DT and Computing which utilise the superb shared facilities that are on offer.
The curriculum is broad and rich and, although it incorporates all the elements of the National Curriculum, takes learning beyond these boundaries. Supplemented by trips out of school and visitors in, we encourage our girls to embrace challenges and take risks intellectually, thereby building resilience, curiosity and developing a love for independent learning.
Happiness is key and your daughters will enjoy a caring, friendly environment where they can flourish and grow into confident and well-balanced young people.
I would be delighted to welcome you to the school so that you can see for yourselves, all that Withington Girls’ School has to offer.
Ms Bridget Howard
Head of the Junior School
