Key Stage 2



Key Stage 2 is the final four years of primary school, between the ages of 7 - 11. During Key Stage 2, we build on the skills the children have learned during Key Stage 1. Using the National Curriculum Framework revised for 2014, we teach the primary subjects of English, Maths, Science, Design and Technology, Computing, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, French and Physical Education. In addition to these, children are also taught Religious Education, and Personal and Social Development.
 
Where possible, subjects are taught thematically to add purpose and depth to children's learning. This bespoke approach links together key skills, knowledge and understanding within a relevant and purposeful context.
 
Pupils will receive homework during this Key Stage, encouraging a good dialogue between home and school, whilst equipping children with skills to extend their learning outside the classroom.
 
 

Residential Visits

Pupils in the upper school can have the opportunity to experience residential visits to France and Rock UK. These not only enrich and broaden the curriculum but also help to develop independence, character, personal and social skills.

 

Clubs

Throughout Key Stage 2, opportunities are provided for children to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
 
 

Instrumental Tuition

Instrumental tuition is available to pupils in Key Stage 2. Currently, guitar, woodwind, strings and brass lessons are offered.
