Reuniting the school: our Infant School is moving back to Melbourne Avenue!
We are delighted to announce that from September 2021, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, who are currently located in the Infant School on Fulwood Road will be reunited with the girls in the Junior School as we move the Infant School pupils back to No.4 and No.5 Melbourne Avenue.
This decision was shaped during lockdown this year while we remained open for the children of key workers. All the girls were together on one site and it was a joy to watch how they played and worked together and learned from each other. It was a powerful reminder and highlighted how much the younger girls can benefit from the opportunities to learn from older girls. Although we have organised regular Infant and Junior School events, our younger girls do not experience the same number of informal cross-phase working as they did when all based on one site. By coming together, we will be better able to share best practice and enhance your daughter’s learning experience.
Our vision for the future, of a truly all-through school on one site, of a school of big sisters and little sisters learning, playing and growing together, will ensure a seamless transition throughout your daughter’s school journey. The younger pupils will also be able to interact more with the Senior School girls, who are super role models and provide mentoring and support.
Before the girls move over in September 2021, we will be adding to and improving the play areas and equipment for the Infant and Junior School, and refurbishing parts of No.4 and No.5 Melbourne Avenue to create a warm and welcoming space for the Infant pupils.
