Curriculum

Junior curriculum

What pupils learn from ages 7-11 is the foundation of their senior school years. For the years when their memory is at its optimum, Blanchelande offers a liberal arts curriculum that privileges the acquisition of core knowledge and subject-mastery.

Blanchelande’s Junior School offers an excellent all-round education. Pupils study English, Maths, Science, RE, French, Latin, Geography, History, Art, Design Technology, Music, Cookery, PSHE, PE and Games. Lessons are taught by a mixture of class and specialist teachers, and with about twenty pupils in each class, pupils can participate in lively discussions while receiving individual support. The curriculum strives to both stretch the academically gifted and support those with particular learning needs. Our PE staff and external coaches ensure that our pupils enjoy plenty of physical activity and sport, from touch rugby to netball and swimming. Our goal is to craft a curriculum that brings out the potential of each individual child.
