Home / Early Years / Reception


Reception, for 4-5 year olds, offers a smooth transfer to more formal learning while still allowing children time to discover and learn through play. We encourage pride in emerging literacy, numeracy and social skills, while fostering individuality and independence.

Children are taught in small groups so they can develop strong bonds with their class teacher and friends. They receive specialist teaching in Computing, French, Music, Art, Design & Technology and PE and can enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities, enabling the unique and natural talents of each child to be nurtured from an early age.
