Pupils in Year 1 to 6 follow programmes of study in the core curriculum subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Information & Communication Technology (ICT), together with the foundation subjects of Humanities (Geography, History), Modern Foreign Languages (Arabic and French), Art & Design, Music and Physical Education. Some learning is delivered through topics, whilst other aspects are dealt with on a subject basis.

In Key Stages 1 and 2, each child studies both English and Mathematics on a daily basis.


Welcome to Year 1
