The curriculum is an exciting blend of the National Curriculum for England and the International Primary Curriculum, enhanced by specialist teaching, in Modern Foreign Languages, Physical Education and Music, and enriching, relevant outside visits. Opportunities are planned to develop confidence and leadership skills and a passion for learning. Students have access to a well-resourced outdoor space for learning and play, their own library and computers.
