A Reception School day

In the Reception department we have three classes of 18 children. Each class has a support assistant who works under the direction of the class teacher. The children follow a curriculum that is broad and balanced and incorporates the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation.

We are able to offer children specialist teaching in French, art, music, games, swimming and ICT. The school's facilities include a Pre-Prep library, a sports hall, a swimming pool, a dance studio and art studio which children from Reception use weekly.
