There is one class per year group, and the class teacher is responsible for the teaching of, usually, English, mathematics, science, history, geography, RS and PSHE. Specialist subject teaching increases as the children get older. French is taught weekly from Kindergarten. In all classes from Reception, specialist PE is taught, and from Year 1, there is also specialist teaching in music, art and computing. All children in Upper School study German.

Each class has a dedicated Teaching Assistant, with Kindergarten and Reception benefiting from even high levels of adult:child ratios.
