Our New Nursery

We opened a new Nursery in September
2017 which provides an ideal stepping stone
to starting school, offering a safe, nurturing
environment where children can grow in
confidence and develop their own style of
learning. The Nursery morning sessions have
a gentle literacy and numeracy focus where
we use play orientated activities to help
the children develop their understanding
of letter sounds and counting skills. Each
week we introduce new phonics and explore
word building, promoting learning in a
quiet but enjoyable and methodical way. In
numeracy, the children begin to understand
the concepts of ordering numbers by size,
sequencing events and associating quantity
to number. In the afternoons, children really
embrace learning about the world around
them through topic based, creative play

Our newly built Pre-Prep provides a unique
educational environment, intelligently
designed to provide spacious classrooms
and an innovative and intuitive learning
atmosphere. In Reception, our imaginative
and multi-sensory delivery of the Early Years
Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum inspires
learning and through creativity and play, our
children grasp number, and their ability to
read and decode develops naturally.

During Year One, we encourage our pupils to
become more independent in their learning.
We study a range of factual and intriguing
topics that we deliver creatively to help the
children learn in a more incidental and engaging
way. Specialist PE lessons are rotated
to cover games, gymnastics and dance and
we introduce French through songs, rhyme
and games. Children also develop simple
computing skills in our stimulating ICT suite.
By allowing our pupils to work at their own
pace, each step of their education builds
on their previous learning experiences and
ensures that their understanding is secure.

By Year Two, pupils have firmly found their
feet and relish opportunities to investigate
and become more independent learners.
We enjoy watching their self-assurance
grow and their ability to make decisions
develop which helps to provide them with
the perfect preparation for a natural move
to into Year 3 and the Prep. Our Nursery and
Pre-Prep provide a calm and nurturing environment
where children can develop their
own style of learning and are well-prepared,
ready to progress on their journey through
the school.
