Giving your daughter an inspiring and nurturing environment in which to learn and grow.

Lower Primary School (Grades 1 – 3)

Grades 1 to 3 provide a wonderfully nurturing and enriching environment, which helps develop your child’s personal, social, and emotional well-being. We know how important these years are to your child’s development. Our experienced and dedicated teaching team, supported by our excellent facilities, creates engaging and challenging opportunities for your child to learn and explore. Positive and respectful relationships between our teachers and pupils are very important to us and our small class sizes offer a flexible and personalised approach to learning, where pupils develop their existing interests and explore new ones.

Our youngest pupils benefit from a broad and personalised curriculum, which aims to develop their core skills and advance an ever-evolving understanding of the world around them.

Our pupils learn the importance of communication and teamwork as they play, explore, and begin to navigate school life and are encouraged to use their imagination and creativity, through varied and engaging tasks and activities.
