Years 3 to 6, our Junior department caters for children aged 7-11 years and in National Curriculum terms is known as Key Stage 2. Handel House has an excellent tradition of which we are proud. The curriculum is broad and balanced. Pupils are fully prepared for the 11+ examination and National Curriculum SATS.
Classes are deliberately kept small to enhance learning and allow for increased individual pupil/teacher time. The exam results in recent years bear testimony to this fact.
Our emphasis continues to be on written and spoken language, mathematics and science, with the entire range of subjects introduced earlier in the school being further developed.
German is also introduced in our Year 3 curriculum and, along with French, continues to be studied until the end of Key Stage 2.
