What the school says...
The Mount Junior School offers a genuinely remarkable education to girls from the age of 2 to 11 and boys from age 2 to 9 years. Our very special ethos leads to an environment which fosters self-belief, independence of thought and a sensitivity to others. We have unashamedly high ideals for our pupils who know their views are listened to and they can contribute positively to make a difference within the school.
In 2012 the Independent Schools Inspectorate noted, 'By the end of Reception, children can read well, write in sentences using simple punctuation, add and subtract competently and solve simple mathematical problems. They are unfailingly polite, well behaved and considerate toward others.' ...Read more
Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Special Education Needs
Small class sizes allow all children to benefit from individual teacher attention. All classes benefit from Teaching Assistant support, to support individuals/groups of children. Children who require additional learning support attend individual or small group sessions with a specialist Learning Support Teacher. Individual Educational Programmes (IEPs) are drawn up for these children, in close consulatation with class teachers and parents, based on the individual child's learning needs. These targets are reviewed termly and new targets are set, to ensure the child's continued progress.
