In Year 1 and Year 2, life becomes a little more formal and the children are proud to have their own desk. However, emphasis is still placed on learning by investigation which complements the whole-class lessons. The question, "Why?” is often to be heard by young, enquiring minds, and answered by both the teachers and the children.
Social skills and good behaviour are valued as highly as academic, creative and physical achievement.
There is a smooth transition into the Prep School with the sharing of teachers and facilities.
