The format of the morning will begin with a live talk at 9.30 am given by Mrs Sue Hay, Head of the Junior School, covering the following topics:

Education in the primary years
We provide a rich and stimulating environment, where our girls can develop their skills, self-esteem, and confidence.

Smaller class sizes
Girls’ needs are catered for in smaller classes with a focus on each individual.

Opportunities for Outdoor Education
Learning outdoors can be more enjoyable, challenging, active and collaborative, enriching our girls’ experiences. Our school gardens and Fantastical Forest are wonderful outdoor spaces.

The transition from nursery to starting school
Our Nursery and Primary 1 staff plan high quality activities to ensure a smooth transition, enabling our girls to make a secure, happy and comfortable start to school.

You will also hear from some of our girls, as well as current parents, about their own experiences of the transition from the Nursery to Primary 1.  This will be followed by a live Q&A session with Mrs Hay, Mrs Nettleton (Head of Nursery), to answer any questions you may have.

The event is open to current nursery families as well as external applicants.
