Years 4 to 8
As well as plays, sports fixtures and concerts, we place great emphasis on the academic progress and development of our pupils. Monitoring and supporting their individual needs is at the heart of the teaching style throughout the school. Exams and assessments are routine, either on paper or electronically and the results are carefully analysed to ensure each pupil is working to his best ability.
Half-term assessments, reports and parent evenings ensure that parents are kept ‘in the loop’ about their sons’ progress. Parents can also contact our staff by email if they wish, either through the Head of Year or via a specific subject teacher. We encourage parents to get in touch to keep us informed about any aspect of their son’s well-being.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
From Year 4 onwards, the school day begins at 8.30 a.m., when registration with the Head of Year is followed by a brief form period.
Timetabled lessons, which begin at 8.40 a.m., include sport /PE most days. Pupils may go home at 4.05 p.m., although most will choose to stay until 5.00 p.m., in order to access an after school club of their choice.
The lunch hour provides opportunity to make the most of free time, with a wide range of facilities and activities available to pupils. A healthy lunch is provided to ensure that pupils have sufficient ‘fuel’ to make the most of their journey.
