In an increasingly competitive and demanding world, it is personal skills and an enterprising instinct as well as academic flair that set successful people apart. Brentwood pupils learn that trying new things and meeting new people are two of life’s great joys.
We find that teachers’ high expectations are met with pupils’ enthusiasm. Pupils are taught by specialist subject teachers in specialist rooms. Science, for example, is taught in a well equipped Science Laboratory and subjects such as Music, French, Art and Design Technology are taught by specialist teachers in dedicated rooms. This approach provides a stimulating and challenging curriculum in which children thrive. With an average class size of 20, staff are able to pay close attention to the development of each child and tailor what they deliver to individual learning needs. Those who are particularly able in a subject are challenged to go further with their skills and ideas, and those who might be finding something harder to understand are given focused help.
Our School has the kind of facilities one would expect to see at Secondary level. What this means is that children who come here very quickly find aptitudes, gifts and talents that may have been missed elsewhere. There is an atmosphere here that encourages everyone to ‘have a go’.
We study all the National Curriculum subjects plus French and Latin. As they move up the School, our pupils are given tasks that require more independent study and research. We also cultivate a sound work ethic in preparation for Senior School. Classroom learning is regularly enhanced with trips and visits around this country and abroad.
