Early Years - School Day in Reception

Nestled in a corner of the school’s beautiful grounds is The Oaks building which houses our Early Years Centre consisting of Pre Reception and Reception classes.
In Reception, children enjoy learning from a broad curriculum, both inside and outside of the classroom, and are actively encouraged to develop their independence and question their discoveries. The children regularly interact with older children and enjoy specialist teaching, helping prepare them for a smooth transition into Year 1.
Our small class sizes and high staff to pupil ratios ensure that every individual’s talents are recognised and encouraged, enabling all children to reach their full potential.
