The Middle School enables children to develop their independence in a stimulating and enjoyable way whilst making it a productive experience for everyone, all within a very friendly and happy atmosphere.
All pupils are encouraged and supported in all areas and Gifted and Talented children are given many opportunities to excel.
For those who may encounter difficulties in learning we have excellent support staff who give specialist advice. Children are encouraged to attend drama, music and sports activities after school and during lunch break. All children attend swimming lessons on a Tuesday with specialist swimming teachers.
Children can arrive at school from 8.30am, children arriving before this time can attend breakfast with the boarders by prior arrangement. All children have morning break and lunch is served in the dining room with children sitting at tables in their age groups. They have a healthy varied menu which includes hot food, a salad bar and dessert. Special dietary requirements are well catered for.
Children in the Middle School also have the opportunity to go surfing, horse riding and, on an adventure day, climbing, abseiling, canoeing etc.
Children also participate in the school’s Additional Learning Programmes, which are taught throughout the school. These include diverse topics such as real world French and Culture and go-cart building. Children will have homework most evenings, which will vary depending on age.
