Garden House Girls' School follows the National Curriculum of English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Religious Education, PSHE, Computing (ICT), Art, Music and Modern Foreign Languages. Physical Education (netball, tennis, rounders, gym, swimming, athletics and pop lacrosse) is integral to our Girls’ School day. In addition, we teach French from Kindergarten. Latin, Design Technology, Current Affairs, Drama, Dancing, and Fencing are included in our broad Curriculum.
Throughout the School Year, we have themed learning days including French Day, Early Years’ Day, Science Investigation Day and annual events including a Maths Olympiad and an inter-house general knowledge competition known as Gardenversity Challenge.
Garden House School provides a thorough, balanced education in a lively and purposeful environment for girls aged 3 to 11. Our girls are taught separately from our boys. Our girls achieve high academic results in a calm and constructive manner. Encouraged to have inquiring, independent minds, emphasis is placed not only on academic, sporting and artistic ability but on manners and consideration to others. The School operates a Kindness Code which is rigorously adhered to and constantly re-emphasised.
The two or three classes within each year group run in parallel. Mathematics is streamed from Junior School (year 2) upwards. Garden House offers a very high teacher/child ratio and the majority of classes have at least one classroom assistant supporting the class teacher.
The School has two libraries and a computer suite. Computing is taught as a specialist subject as well as being integral to a girl’s learning across the Curriculum. The School has an art room, ballet/performance room and a well-resourced music room.
