Welcome to

Junior School

Breadth of education, outstanding facilities and spacious grounds set Crosfields School apart from other schools in the area. The Junior School is busy and vibrant, providing exceptional pastoral care, academic excellence and a vast range of opportunity. Our recent ISI inspection outcome was ‘excellent’ and the inspectors remarked that, “Academic attainment is in advance of that expected at the relevant levels of age and stage of development.”

COEDUCATION AND DIVERSITY

We believe in the positive benefits of educating girls and boys together.

Crosfields promotes acceptance and respect regardless of gender, ethnicity, nationality, culture and religious beliefs. The aim of any great school is to prepare its pupils for the world beyond the classroom and in that world men and women, from different cultures, work and study together. Educating boys and girls together in their formative years ensures that they have an excellent foundation for the future. During classroom discussion and debate, pupils are encouraged to express their views and to explore and understand the viewpoints of others.

BREADTH

An effective co-curricular programme

At Crosfields we encourage children to experiment and to challenge themselves. The importance of an effective co-curricular programme cannot be underestimated. Not only is there growing evidence that it has a positive impact on academic progress, but also the soft skills (communication, responsibility, flexibility and integrity) which it promotes are recognised as being important towards success at later education and in the work place environment.

Co-curricular will enrich a pupil, both during and after school life. An effective programme will provide the necessary balance between emotional, academic and social development for a young child.

PASTORAL CARE AND WELLBEING

Happiness and wellbeing of our pupils

Every parent knows that happy children make good progress both academically and socially. Pastoral care has been a particular strength of Crosfields and we will continue to emphasise the importance of happiness and wellbeing in our Junior School. We recognise the need to evolve, to reflect the needs of pupils with the additional challenges and pressures of today. Our pastoral care in the Junior School is exceptional.

SMALL CLASSES

Optimum learning environments

Small class sizes are incredibly important to us and we believe that by maintaining classes of 20 children, or less, pupils thrive as individuals.
