Early Years Foundation Stage

Teaching in the EYFS is excellent. It is lively, imaginative and fun"
ISI Report

The first years of your daughter’s education are vital. At this stage, girls learn to play together, to share, make friends and develop the learning habits they will need for the rest of their lives. 

From the moment a girl joins our school, we want to ensure that she and her family feel part of this exciting and supportive community. The relationship between school and home is paramount with everyone working together to help girls develop a passion for learning.

In Reception we create a breadth of exciting activities within a safe and nurturing environment and encourage all girls to develop an ability to think and learn for themselves.

Your daughter will be taught mainly by her class teacher and teaching assistant and the daily routine is flexible to give girls every opportunity to develop key skills and understanding. Girls follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and develop reasoning skills, numeracy, communication, language and literacy and understanding of the world as well as physical development through PE lessons. Modern languages are taught by a specialist. Each day girls enjoy creative activities such as Art and Design and also have the benefit of specialist class music lessons with the Junior School Director of Music.
