We are an all-round school for all children. Our aim is that each boy and girl enjoys the present while preparing for their future. Set in eight acres of grounds, the school is self-contained and well-resourced, offering small classes and high levels of teaching. Our motto from 1884 still sums up our approach today: fortiter, fideliter, feliciter; bravely, faithfully, happily.
Our pupils thrive both in and out of the classroom and achieve highly in terms of places, scholarships and awards to selective schools at 11+ and 13+.
St. Aubyn’s Nursery is a warm and welcoming place where children are happy to play and learn. The children join us at 3 years of age and quickly settle into their new surroundings.
St. Aubyn’s Nursery is based on the main school site and in 2010 the Nursery building was extended with a bright new conservatory area. We also have two exciting outdoor spaces, one of which the children can have constant access to, in accordance with Early Years requirements.
The Nursery children are also able to make use of the main school’s outstanding facilities. This includes visits to the well resourced library, the Sports Centre and the Performing Arts Centre.
The learning experience aims to inspire the child inside and outside of the classroom. The curriculum is designed to meet the criteria outlined in the EYFS framework.
Our qualified, friendly staff provide a stimulating, nurturing environment where each child’s needs are catered for through our play based curriculum. Children learn through a wide and varied range of play, and we firmly believe that learning should be absorbing, challenging and plenty of fun! This approach provides a basic grounding in numeracy and literacy, thereby enabling children to progress into their primary education with a sense of achievement and confidence.
We aim to provide a happy, busy, stimulating and structured environment, where our children feel valued and secure and where they thrive and achieve to the best of their ability. We pride ourselves on a learning environment that promotes good manners, sensitivity, sense of community and self confidence.
In the Middle School we value each child as an individual and to that end, there are small classes where we can encourage and guide each one to develop to their full potential. We aim to create an environment where we believe each child wants to be successful and happy. We take the time to celebrate each success, whether in the classroom, on the sports field, in or out of school. Middle School is a place where pupils and teachers enjoy and value learning.
