Classroom teaching broadly follows the guidelines of the National Curriculum. The core subjects of English, Maths, Science and ICT are adapted to take account of each individual ‘s needs.

Junior pupils and senior pupils have access to all school facilities/resources ie. the junior pupils have access to the Food Tech Room, DT Room etc.

Literacy and Numeracy sessions are timetabled daily and individual tuition is linked to these lessons. Each child is a member of a small group for daily Reading support. The Literacy course encourages reading for pleasure as well as for reference. A wide selection of books is provided for school and home use.

The Arts are important elements of our School life. These activities help to improve motor and co-ordination skills as well as being creative and therapeutic. Individual potential can be realised and confidence boosted through involvement in music and drama productions, martial arts and dance.

Our pupils are fortunate in being taught on a site surrounded by cultivated gardens, woodlands and a playing field for football, cricket, hockey, rounders and athletics.

A modern sports hall provides us with generously covered space for daily occupational therapy exercises, Mindful Movement, gymnastics, indoor hockey and football, badminton, netball and basketball.

The Junior School pupils have access to the well-resourced Design & Technology Room, Food Tech Room and all the Senior School resources and facilities. This has proven to be an added bonus for the Junior School.
