The junior curriculum is designed to bring out the best in each boy.  It is challenging, creative, diverse and exciting and has the needs of junior boys in mind at all times. It is their curriculum.  Boys relish a philosophy that encourages discovery, independence, innovation and fun. 

Our dedicated teaching staff offer boys a broad range of subjects. From Years 3 to 6, the boys study the core subjects of English, Maths and Science along with Art, Design Technology, French, Geography, History, ICT, Music, Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Religious Studies.  They also take part in a full programme of PE, Games and swimming.

We place a high value on a cross-curricular approach to learning where boys are challenged and encouraged to question, debate, reflect, make mistakes and learn from them. We encourage independent research and learning skills to help develop curiosity and high levels of interest.

Sport, music, drama and the arts matter greatly.  Boys thrive with such an approach and become very well-rounded learners who understand that learning is as important on the sports field as it is in the classroom.

We are passionate that the junior years from Years 3 to 6 are a unique part of a boy’s development and education.  We build on boys’ success in the early years and infants with a philosophy that ensures that boys are always taught as juniors and experience a curriculum that recognises this unique stage in their lives.  Junior boys do not come this way again and leave our junior school with the skills, ideas, feelings and thoughts to be successful in our senior school.

Our curriculum leads to high levels of academic and personal success as boys enjoy a curriculum that engages and excites them.  It really is a joy to learn at the Junior School.
