Aside from our year group divisions, our pupils’ learning is divided into two distinct phases. Lower School refers to year groups reception to year 2, during which learning is cross-curricular and forms parts of a progressive learning journey for ages 2 – 7. Here, we focus on creating a nurturing environment, through which skills such as problem-solving, reasoning, organisation, and sharing can be developed. While students learn academically during this time, their social and emotional development is another key focus.
