Our aim is to ensure that the boys develop the skills that will stand them in good stead when they move to the Lower School at 11+. The boys benefit from an experienced teaching staff with specialist teachers to coach them on specific subjects. In addition to the wealth of knowledge they gain with us, the boys learn how to apply their own critical thinking, to be able organise themselves, to be confident and articulate, to take responsibility for their own learning and to be aspirational in their efforts. Lessons are structured to allow for an active participation in the learning process so that the boys discover how to explore subjects, ask questions and develop their own conclusions with the guidance and support of their teachers. We want boys to be excited about coming to school and aim to teach lessons that are stimulating, focused and ambitious.
