From the earliest years, the PLC approach to primary education looks to recognise and nurture the ability of each girl in all areas of potential - linguistic, mathematical, musical, artistic, physical, and communicative.
A broad curriculum, favourable student/teacher ratios and explicit and effective teaching strategies help our students to develop an enthusiasm for learning through success. Wide-ranging skills and personal qualities emerge as girls experience opportunities for performance, leadership and responsibility. Initiative, achievement, creativity and individuality are celebrated in a context in which personal values and social attitudes, consistent with Christian teaching, are upheld. The importance of successful learning and personal development in the early years cannot be over-emphasised and the College has an exceptional record of achievement for students of wide-ranging abilities.
Our Junior School building has extensive facilities that include spacious play areas and sports facilities, well-equipped classrooms, Assembly Hall, ICT Centre, Library and rooms dedicated to Art, French, Music, Dance, Drama, Christian Education and the Department of Individual Differences.
Students will be happiest when parents and teachers are working together in the best interests of the student. Parents are kept informed of student progress through information and parent/teacher evenings, written reports and interviews. Parents are invited to participate in many school functions. The Junior School Parents' Association, whose members offer hospitality and refreshments at school functions, organises social and fund-raising activities and enhances the community spirit and facilities of the Junior School .
