What says..

Academic focus gradually ratchets up as girls approach 11. iPads compulsory in years 5 and 6, with parents voicing the usual pros (they’ve gained so many skills!) and cons (they’re addicted!). Immense range of clubs from construction to knitting to music tech helps augment the shortish school day.
