HEAD TEACHER'S PHILOSOPHY: if we want children to be the best they can be, academically, artistically, in sport or as people, we must start by valuing them for who they are.

PASTORAL CARE: We are committed to giving both time and care to grow your child's character on his or her journey from Reception to Year 6. Our Christian ethos leads us to believe that personal growth ultimately matters more than lists of achievements. So while we are thrilled by children's awards and accolades, we are even more excited about who they are.

THE CURRICULUM: Our small class size enables us to get to know your child extremely well so that we can set specific individualised academic targets and also discover how he or she learns best. We offer a truly holistic education where every child has a go at all areas and then when their individual passions are discovered, we offer growth opportunities with extra-curricular clubs. The main curriculum consists of maths, english, science, technology, computing, history, geography, reasoning, Spanish, art, music, drama, a range of sports and gardening.

GAMES AND THE ARTS: We train pupils in the Arts (painting, drawing, clay clubs, design & technology, music, choir, drama) with fantastic specialist teaching and a plethora of performing and exhibiting opportunities. We also coach children in a wide range of sports (football, tag rugby, hockey, cricket, netball, rounders, athletics, dance and cross country running) through dynamic teaching and a superb fixture list.

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: We have a variety of clubs including a range of team sports, art - painting, drawing and clay, drama, dance, Lego Robotics, computer coding, French, and chess. Peripatetic teachers give individual lessons in piano, violin, flute, clarinet and saxophone.

RECENT SENIOR EXIT SCHOOLS: ACS Cobham, Alleyns, Box Hill, Caterham, Dulwich College, Eaton Square Senior, Emanuel, Epsom College, Francis Holland, Frensham Heights, Kew House, Kings College Wimbledon, Ibstock Place, JAGS, St Catherine's Bramley, St John's Leatherhead, Streatham & Clapham High, Royal Russell, Thames Christian School, Trinity, Woldingham, Worth School.

OUTSTANDING CHARACTERISTICS: The combination of nurture and dynamism. The passionate commitment of the staff. A fantastic all-round education. with a focus on character development, with compassion and respect for the whole school community.

NOAH'S ARK NURSERY SCHOOLS: Dolphin School Trust also operates two warm, friendly nursery schools that provide an excellent start to a child's education. These are based in Wandsworth (SW11 & SW18). We work very closely in partnership with parents and provide a stimulating and vibrant learning environment, where the children feel safe, secure and happy.
