Infants – Year 1 and 2

A more formal approach to learning is adopted as girls progress into Year 1. The curriculum is broad and balanced and individual progress within this is continually monitored. Maths is currently set from this stage, enabling girls to develop firm foundations upon which their understanding can be built at the pace most appropriate to them. The teaching staff, including our Classroom Assistants, work closely drawing upon each other’s strengths and expertise to the benefit of the children.

The Infant Department has its own library which is constantly being added to. Girls are encouraged to foster a love of books and reading, this includes borrowing books to use in the classroom or take home from the library as well as through their progress in the reading scheme.
