Welcome

STEM

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics activities are threaded throughout our curriculum, developing the girls’ creative and critical thinking skills. We believe it is important to address STEM from an early age and practical experiments are introduced from as early as reception, allowing the girls to learn through personal exploration. This may be designing a boat to float, building a simple bridge using crafting materials and using an elastic band to propel motion – all enjoyed by the girls in Pre-Prep. As girls move up the School they benefit from specialist facilities, such as a Science Lab, IT suite, Design Technology classroom and dedicated Maths rooms, which all help to propel their STEM learning.

Early Years

Sport

Woodland School

The Woodland School at Maltman’s Green offers a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor education. We have a bird hide, mud kitchen, bug hotel, fire pit and plenty of trees and shrubbery to explore. In our secure Discovery Garden, girls get the opportunity to investigate aquatic life in our natural pond and take part in gardening projects. Woodland and landscaped areas are dotted throughout the grounds and all girls have access to natural areas during playtime.

The Arts

School Phases

Our youngest girls join the Early Years aged 2 to 4 into Little Malties day care or our Nursery School. In the Early Years, every day is packed full of enjoyable and enriching activities, enabling the girls to make the most of their learning experience.

Next, girls move into the Pre-Prep comprising Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 for girls aged 4 to 7. A dedicated team of teachers and teaching assistants work to ensure our girls are happy, motivated and confident, ready for their transition into Prep School.

The Prep School phase starts in Year 3 at age 7 to 8, and ends in Year 6 at age 11. At this stage the girls become highly independent, developing the confidence, skills and knowledge that thoroughly prepares them for senior school and beyond.

Extra-Curricular

Our extensive extra-curricular programme is an outstanding feature of the School. A variety of non-chargeable clubs are available before school, during lunchtime and after school, giving plenty of opportunity to take part and try something new. There are also chargeable clubs including language and music tuition, and specialist sport coaching.
