The school prides itself on excellence in the creative and performing arts: all pupils from the Nursery upwards take part in one major and one smaller dramatic production a year, enabling them to develop confidence in performing in front of others. Music, Drama and Sport are all taught by specialist teachers.
From Year 1 onwards, tuition is offered in violin and cello, with about twenty-five pupils learning these instruments. In the Michaelmas and Summer Term, children who learn a musical instrument both inside and out of school, put on a mini concert to parents.
Throughout the year we have focus weeks; a Literacy week is held during which children will explore various aspects of reading and writing - this has included writing newspaper reports, participating in poetry workshops and even meeting a book illustrator, an equally exciting Science week is also held in which Senior School staff and 'A' level science pupils play a major role. We also have a Maths week when the children hold workshops for parents. Other curriculum events we have are Grandparents Day, Geography Day, maypole dancing and skipping workshops. Visits and visitors connected to the termly projects that all classes follow add interest to the children's learning.
Each class visits at least one place of interest each term connected to their projects. We try to use the rich opportunities that the London area offers: Kenwood House, the National Gallery, the Barbican Centre, The Science Museum, the Little Angel Puppet Theatre and London Zoo are amongst the venues visited regularly.
