Key Stage 1


Key Stage 1 is an integral part of a student’s learning, where we ensure progression in the development of essential life skills. Students are encouraged to learn through a sense of inquiry and develop a keen desire to know. The school aims to provide a happy, nurturing environment where each child is treated as an individual. With our strong well-defined curriculum, students grow into well-rounded, happy, and responsible people.
