What says..

The pre-prep buzzes with activity. On the day we visited, nursery children were merrily singing Five Little Speckled Frogs outside with their teacher while year 2s were busy chronicling their recent walk around the local area (we were very impressed that they could spell ‘aerial’ at such a tender age). French, music, dance and sport with specialist teachers from nursery upwards. Nursery and reception classes each have their own teaching assistants...

Executive head

Since 2022, Rebecca (‘Bex’) Tear BSc MA PGCE PGDip, previously head of Badminton School. She read chemistry at the University of Exeter, followed by a PGCE at UCL’s Institute of Education.

Special Education Needs

As a non-selective school for 4+ entry, we have a few children who prove to be dyslexic or dyspraxic. Should this be suspected, we request that the child has a full educational assessment with an educational psychologist. If necessary, we can then provide some 1 to 1 support, no more than two half hour lessons per week, for which a charge is made. This programme is supervised by our SENCO together with our part-time dyslexia specialists. We also have the services of a paediatric physiotherapist who spends one day a week in school to help children who are known to have dyspraxic type difficulties. We are an academic school and prefer, where possible, to limit the number of special needs children in any one year. 09-09
