Wheathampstead House Curriculum
Wheathampstead House is a wonderful place to learn! The girls have fun whilst learning in a safe, supportive and caring family environment. The curriculum for all ages is broad and balanced, going beyond the national curriculum; the girls learn skills as well as knowledge. There is a strong focus on creativity, thinking skills and independent learning, as well as the use of new technologies to support learning. We use the extensive school grounds, including the school woods and meadow to provide rich outdoor learning environments. The girls develop a love of learning which will be important throughout their lives.
The classrooms are modern, bright and very well resourced. The girls have specialist subject teachers in Science, French (from Year 3), Music and Physical Education.
Work is differentiated within lessons to provide each individual girl with appropriate challenges and small class sizes ensure all pupils have a high level of teacher input and support.
Outstanding pastoral care is central to the life of the school. Beyond the endless learning opportunities each girl knows she is valued and respected as an individual and as a part of the whole school community.
