Our bespoke curriculum is tailored to the needs of our girls and their future aspirations. Experience and expertise ensures that teaching goes beyond the bounds of the National Curriculum. We excite and stimulate the girls’ imaginations by exploring subject knowledge through the use of an overarching creative topic, encouraging independent thought and critical thinking.
Performance and presentation skills are an integral part of our academic offer. Girls of all ages are encouraged to become articulate speakers and confident performers, playing, singing and acting in our many concerts and dramatic productions. The girls experience speaking in front of varied audiences through debating, public speaking and poetry recital events, as well as delivering a class assembly every year.
Our aim is to provide the girls with the skills to be confident, critical and flexible in their approach to and use of technology. All girls in Years 5 and 6 have their own iPad to encourage an exploratory and creative engagement in digital learning. Our pupil Digital Leaders support and inspire innovation in our curriculum.
As part of our strong environmental ethos, we have an integrated Forest School programme, which offers opportunities for the girls to encounter the joy of the natural environment.
