During the Foundation Stage dedicated teachers encourage and promote active learning across all areas of the Early Year's Foundation Curriculum (EYFS), celebrate the achievements of each child, and prepare them for a smooth transition to Primary School. Digital technology is seamlessly woven into the classrooms to ensure all children interact with technology as a study tool. At this stage, language development is a key skill. Every child is encouraged to use a range of words and structures to communicate their ideas across various topics.
Specialist teachers in Primary School extend the thinking of each child, developing their ability to observe, question, and conduct research in all fields of study. A wide range of specialist subjects is offered to start from Year 2, which includes music, computer science, design technology, art, and linguistics. Specialist mathematics and English are also offered to those with learning challenges and those with special talents.
Children will continue to be encouraged and challenged within a strict academic framework during the upper years of primary school. The secondary program offers comprehensive education that combines academic excellence and rich opportunities for the enrichment program. It was designed to develop independent learning, resilience, and trust, and offer students immediate benefits to gain top university positions and, later, to work.
Key Stage 3 Study Program follows the broad and balanced National Curriculum for England and offers a broader international dimension which extends learning beyond normal age-related expectations. In Year 10, students are fully supported by making their GCSE or IGCSE choices. There is a complete range of more than 20 optional courses offered at Hartland.
