IGNITING IMAGINATIONS

PLAYING TO LEARN - AND LEARNING TO PLAY

Our youngest children progress in the seven EYFS areas by playing and exploring, getting active, and taking part in activities that get them thinking creatively.

Every day is packed with tailored learning experiences that inspire a sense of wonder and ignite our students’ imaginations. Our bespoke timetable includes long periods of uninterrupted play, enabling our children to learn new skills, develop their knowledge, and demonstrate understanding.

Healthy habits
From nutritious snack choices to getting active, we encourage healthy habits every single day. Eating a balanced lunch is a big part of our students’ physical development. It also gives them the energy they need to play and discover.

OUR FACILITIES

OUR PURPOSE-BUILT CAMPUS

Our warm and welcoming Early Years and Infant Campus is the perfect place to learn.

Our splash pool, sensory walkways, rooftop garden, dedicated outdoor spaces, and playgrounds with climbing apparatus give our children the freedom to explore. And as they grow in confidence, we encourage them to use other facilities within the school, including our large library, music rooms, DREAMS lab, and more.

The Right Honourable Lord Puttnam of Queensgate, who officially opened our campus in 2018, described our early years spaces as: “The finest teaching and learning environment I have ever experienced in my life, and I’ve been around the world many, many times.”
