Littlegarth pro­vides ideal tran­si­tion from Nurs­ery to Re­cep­tion When Littlegarth School de­cided to build a sub­stan­tial new teach­ing fa­cil­ity, the first pri­or­ity was to place brand new pur­pose built Re­cep­tion class­rooms right be­side our de­light­ful Nurs­ery fa­cil­i­ties. The Early Years at Littlegarth has al­ways been a strength of the School and in our most re­cent ISI in­spec­tions (2014 and 2017) we were given the top grade of Ex­cel­lent in all ar­eas. Ex­pe­ri­enced staff delight in pre­par­ing our children for en­try into Re­cep­tion and this year our children were able to work and play be­side their new class­rooms and visit the class­rooms reg­u­larly dur­ing the sum­mer term. This has helped to en­sure the smoothest of tran­si­tions into the Re­cep­tion classes this Septem­ber and the children have loved learn­ing in their new class­room and out­door learn­ing ar­eas. The fact that they are able to keep such close ties with their Nurs­ery this term has pro­vided ex­tra com­fort. Littlegarth is a co-ed­u­ca­tional in­de­pen­dent school which sup­ports children as they strive to de­velop a wide range of skills through our broad, bal­anced cur­ricu­lum. The ex­ten­sive grounds of Horkesley Park pro­vide an ideal set­ting for a wide range of learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences for children from Nurs­ery to Year 6. In ad­di­tion to out­stand­ing class­room teach­ing, EYFS children re­ceive sub­ject spe­cial­ist teach­ing in sport, mu­sic, drama and French which con­tin­ues through­out their time at the school. When children reach the age of eight, all lessons are taught by sub­ject spe­cial­ists in fa­cil­i­ties that help to in­spire the children to strive for excellence across the cur­ricu­lum. If you would like to dis­cover more about the ex­cel­lent ed­u­ca­tion pro­vided to EYFS children at Littlegarth, please visit our web­site and con­tact our Reg­is­trar, Carolyne Morey, to ar­range a visit.
