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.

Thank the school

"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.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

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.
