The aims of our Junior School are to provide an ambitious educational programme for all our students and to enable each one to develop academic confidence and independence in his or her learning. Our Junior School is a friendly and warm place for boys and girls aged 3 to 11 (Nursery – Year 6). The class sizes remain small to ensure quality interaction between students and teachers. Within this supportive community the students absorb themselves in the fun and adventure of learning. Currently we have 315 students, of which over 20% are international students from China, Japan, UK, and New Zealand. Our highest priority is to maintain a team of outstanding teachers who will inspire and encourage each student.
Students in the Junior School follow a curriculum based on that of NLCS UK. This is an academically ambitious programme of learning where our teachers create an environment in which children are able to actively discover new skills, knowledge and understanding. We aim to develop internationally-minded young people with an understanding of their responsibility to each other and the wider community.
To promote positive attitudes and raise self-esteem, we hold weekly Celebration Assemblies for the whole school. In addition, every child in the Junior School, from Years 3-6 belongs to a House, just as they do in the Senior School. As part of a House team, students learn to work with one another, supporting and leading different ages, as well as engaging with the fun of the school wide House competition.
