Meadowbrook children are seen as partners in the learning process, taught how to learn and not just what to learn and are actively involved in the academic and behavioural expectations of the School.
Primary children are encouraged to develop a positive growth mindset, learn from their mistakes and continue to challenge themselves, by believing in their capabilities and empowering them to have a say in their development.
Many of our children join the Primary Department from other schools and make the most of their new environment, settling in quickly and making excellent progress from their starting points.
What does school REALLY teach children? Do you want truth to come from authority, intelligence to be the ability to remember and repeat, accurate memory and repetition to be blindly rewarded, non-compliance to be punished and life to be about conforming both intellectually and socially?
Is that REALLY what you want for your child?
Children who are turning five can join our Primary Department in the September although entry is not automatic and follows an informal selection process. We also accept children from other schools during any point in the year or at any point in the school, subject to space.
Classes are combined to create four different groups housed within spacious, bright and airy classrooms:
Lower Primary: Reception and Years 1 & 2
Upper Primary: Years 3 & 4 and Years 5 & 6
Each class benefits from a highly-experienced class teacher and further appropriate staffing depending on the needs of the children.
Class sizes range from 12 to 20, determined according to the needs of the individuals within the class.
