What says..

Certainly a lively phonics lesson was in progress when we visited – year 1s having a blast with an enthusiastic male teacher – 40 per cent of the teaching staff are men and there’s a healthy range of ages. ‘The teachers show immense enthusiasm for the individual child,’ said a parent.

What the school says...

At St Faiths our philosophy is to value every child as a unique individual, who enjoys learning and thinking for him or herself. We provide a supportive and secure environment in which children can flourish and learn at their own pace and in their own individual way. Our role is to stimulate and encourage their development and enjoyment of learning through a variety of different activities in secure indoor and outdoor situations, through play and through structured and creative activities. We encourage the growth of social skills and empathy amongst the children. The relationships which the children develop with each other and with our staff are central to their happiness and lay the best possible foundations for their future.

St Faiths was founded in 1884 and offers children a thoroughly contemporary education as well as all the benefits associated with a first-class independent school. The day at St Faiths does not start and end when a bell goes children and parents are welcomed for breakfast and our dining hall is often a buzz as many parents enjoy our breakfast offering. There is a popular late stay programme, as well as an impressively long list of activities after school.

Ms Anna Cornell, Registrar, will extend a warm welcome should you decide to visit us, and will be delighted to show you round our school, she will be pleased to answer any of your questions. We look forward to welcoming you to St Faiths.
