Take a handful of curiosity and enthusiasm, pour over creativity and thinking skills, season generously with sport, music, drama and a host of other activities, blend it with firm friendships and a dash of guidance and you have the perfect recipe.

 

Our junior school is a happy, buzzy place, which brings together pupils (boys have now joined our girls in Year 3 from September 2014) from all kinds of backgrounds in a close community. They have had varied educational experiences, both in Britain and around the world, so what you already know matters less than what you can learn.

'Every day is different – when I arrive, I wonder what I'll do today'

Whenever children join us, they quickly feel at home here, whether they arrive in Year 3 or Year 6 – and their horizons expand rapidly to take in science, new languages, a range of sports, musical instruments, drama, charity fund-raising and the closest of friendships. Since they automatically qualify for the senior school, these often strengthen into adulthood, as they grow up together.

This is a place where habits are formed for life – resilience, persistence, questioning and decisiveness among them. As preparation for an uncertain world, we want to make sure our pupils have more than just knowledge. An ability to think around problems and opportunities, make original connections and take carefully evaluated risks gives them a set of skills and habits that enable them to respond positively in the face of change and reach their potential.

In short, we teach them to think outside the traditional box of conventional education.
