The Junior School's Aims
The Junior School shares its aims with the Senior School. We aim to provide an ambitious, stimulating education for girls aged 4-11. This is done in a safe and supportive learning environment with strong pastoral care, which prepares girls to be confident pupils when they enter the Senior School aged 11. Junior girls are encouraged to be self-motivated, independent thinkers.

During the course of the year girls are taken on a variety of expeditions that enhance the curriculum. These include the British Museum, The National Gallery and Hampton Court. Year 4 have an overnight Bushcraft adventure, Year 5 have a three day residential trip to Shropshire and Year 6 spend a week in France on a language and activity course.

Extra-Curricular Activities
Alongside the academic subjects, a wide-ranging programme of extra-curricular 'clubs' take place during the week. All girls are encouraged to take part in these and may choose from such activities as netball, dance, drama, digital photography, Spanish or percussion. Staff are invited to run after school extra-curricular clubs of their own choice. As an example we currently we have members of staff running speed stacking, debating and Flamenco dance club.

Professional Development Opportunities
There is a strong culture of professional development at the School. In addition to the openly advertised internal promotion and professional development posts, the School also offers a number of external opportunities.
