We aim to stimulate curiosity, interest and enjoyment of learning. The lessons are lively and challenging, broadly following the National Curriculum. Students are prepared for the St Helen’s senior school examination in mathematics and English.
Class Teachers get to know the students extremely well and are well placed to offer support on both academic and personal/social levels.
Some subjects are taught by teachers from the senior school, and lessons have access to the full facilities of the senior School, using the music rooms, science labs, computer science rooms, art and technology studios, Language Learning Centre and gymnasiums each week. We also use the swimming pool at Abingdon School.
Many educational visits take place throughout the year to enrich and extend the curriculum.
