...Here's an extract from an Ofsted Report with one of our partnered schools... this is the impact we have and the quality we offer.
'Pupils enjoy the interesting curriculum that is planned for them. The range of subjects that are taught is broad and includes artistic, musical and physical activities which are linked to the topics they are learning. For example, Year 4 pupils were focused then they worked on a rhythmic ‘Viking beat’, and Year 5 pupils developed their skills well when they used a fine nib and ink pen to create detail on a dragon picture, linking closely to a book they were reading together in class'.
