The school follows the principles of 19th century German educationalist, Friedrich Froebel. His beliefs were radical in his time but these days much of it sounds like common sense. The difference in teaching methods between this and other similar schools is not huge. Froebel believed in constructive play and the mother's central role in the education of the child.
The junior school has recently moved into a £2 million purpose built facility, providing a magnificent art studio amd science laboratory as well as nine classrooms.
Most children carry on to the senior school at 11.
