Accelerating into Foreign Languages
Year Five sees our accelerated learning programme being extended into Modern Foreign Languages with the children either building on the French that they have studied since Reception or learning Spanish. The children have four lessons a week at a time when their self confidence is high and the challenge of speaking in another language is an opportunity to be enjoyed. They may then study for their GCSE at the age of fourteen. All subjects are taught by specialist teachers from this age.
Residential Sports Tours for all are introduced for all children and an outdoor adventure camping trip further increases their independence. Year five also sees individual plans agreed for Senior School education and scholarship opportunities, in a meeting between parents and the Head.
