Year One

Following on from Reception, children move into our Year One class.  The class size is intentionally very small, to enable the attention to detail to be very specific to the development of each child.  This is ensured by the full time teacher and the Teaching Assistant, who work together to help each child reach his or her full potential.  There is a great emphasis on continuing to develop reading and writing skills, as well as consolidating and extending mathematics knowledge.  We encourage a thirst for learning and high academic achievement, combined with lots of fun!

Trips to the Botanic Gardens, the Museum of Cambridge and a host of the city’s educational attractions widen and deepen the children’s experience.  Specialist teachers deliver Spanish, Art, Music and P.E. lessons.


Throughout the school, the majority of teaching is carefully planned to reflect the pupils’ prior learning … An excellent variety of activities is delivered in a lively way, with an appropriate pace, which fosters the interest and enjoyment of pupils.
