In Reception, we believe that play is at the heart of all learning. Our bespoke, creative and exciting curriculum sparks curious minds, encourages our pupils to take risks and develops a depth of learning. We build on their natural curiosity to become resilient, confident and independent learners.

Our newly extended light-filled classrooms and integrated outdoor learning area provide the safe, nurturing atmosphere for all girls to thrive. With the support of our experienced team, they quickly learn to socialise and make friends, working and playing alongside each other.

We encourage parents to be actively involved in their daughter’s learning experiences through our interactive online journey.

The daily routine is flexible; a combination of child-led learning and directed teaching gives the girls every opportunity to take ownership of their learning. Specialist teaching in computing, French, sport, and music offers an early exposure to a wide range of skills for the future.
