Foundation Phase (Grade RR - Grade 3 )

Our Foundation Phase children are educated in a nurturing Catholic Christian environment which ensures that they grow in a stable and nurturing setting, helping them to progress intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

In our Grade RR to Grade 3 classes we lay a strong foundation in Literacy, Numeracy and Life Skills whilst developing 21 st century critical thinking skills within a creative programme. Music, Art and Drama also play an important and vital role in nurturing a child’s self-confidence and the power of their imagination and we are privileged to have the expertise of specialist teachers in Music, Dance and Drama.

Outdoor skills are developed in sport adding a wonderful and much needed richness to childhood development in the modern world. We offer a well-rounded Physical Education programme that aims to develop muscle development, co-ordination and confidence. A wide variety of sport is offered including Ball Skills, Cricket, Soccer, Hockey and Swimming. Private lessons are offered in Tennis, Swimming and Drama.

Learning takes place both at school, and beyond the classroom. Our warm, experienced teachers ensure that our children are well prepared for an increasingly demanding world and extension activities such as educational shows, market days, exciting excursions, JP Galas, JP Sports Days as well as a Dance and Drama Productions form part of the school calendar.

We also offer an After-Care programme available to parents who require this facility in the afternoons. In this environment, our children grow in all aspects whilst interacting with other pupils in a structured but enjoyable active programme.
