The interior of our school has had several major changes this year. My name is Natalie and as a school council president and a Year 11 student in the Wolsey class, I wanted to share with you my feelings about our new classroom and hallway that were renovated and changed over the summer break this year.
The Y10/Y11 classroom is more modern and cosy thanks to the new design. Almost everything is brand new and very nice. Having a new desk that has room for both my computer and textbooks is great for keeping my workspace tidy and organised. I couldn't praise the new chairs more: they are very comfortable. The white perforated panels lining each of our seats offer more privacy and allow me to concentrate on my studies without distractions. In addition, they make lovely decorations.
I was also impressed and still am with the transformation of our main hallway. Here you will find computers for both secondary and primary students to use for homework or recess fun. There are also comfortable chairs, armchairs, and pufs that all students love. It's a great place to relax and hang out with friends.
Overall, I think the renovated spaces are very nice. I would like to sincerely thank the school for investing the time and attention into creating them, because it is always better to study in a nicer and more comfortable environment, which is what the school has provided for us.

Jolly Phonics is an engaging way to teach children pre -reading and pre -writing skills using phonics. Phonics is the teaching of the sounds that letters make, rather than the names of letters that are taught in the alphabet, because it is the sounds that are useful for reading and writing, not the names. These sounds are taught in a systematic way, alongside all of the skills needed for being a fluent reader and writer in future. Jolly Phonics also teaches all of this in a fun and engaging way, through characters, stories, actions, songs and games! To read more about Jolly Phonics, clickhere.

It is an excellent way to practise the skills learned through the Jolly Phonics Programme..
Cambridge Primary ENGLISH promotes an enquiry-based approach, developing learners’ confidence, creativity and intellectual engagement. Learners develop English skills that they can apply to a range of different purposes and audiences in everyday situations and in study.
We teach English as a first language. Pupils that are only starting to learn English or need some additional support are allocated to our intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) programme.More about Cambridge Primary English
Cambridge Primary MATHEMATICS focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject. Knowing your times tables facts without practical application and without developing alongside some good problem solving skills is not that helpful - in our school, we make sure our pupils know why they are learning it and how they can use the specific knowledge and skill.More about Cambridge Primary Maths
