The strong foundations that have been so carefully laid during the early years of the children’s education now come into fruition as they progress through the school in preparation for the transition to senior school. As children journey towards the top of the school there is a steady change of pace.
Children move to the Upper School for Year 3. The Upper School is where our children really come into their own, demonstrating the confidence and leadership skills that have built over the years, which will stand them in such good stead when they move on to senior school. The aim of our Upper School is to provide a rich and varied curriculum which is stimulating and suitably demanding yet is flexible enough to suit the ability of each child and to bring out the best in each of them.
These years are a very special time at Cameron Vale, a time for our children really stretch themselves, seek new challenges and enjoying fresh opportunities. Whether it be academically, on the sports field, in the performing arts or in the great outdoors, we feed children’s enthusiasm and encourage them to enjoy and get the most out of these key developmental years.
We continue to teach the same subjects as in Years 1 and 2. A stimulating, balanced and broadly-based education is provided, which, within the framework of the National Curriculum, affords every child the opportunity to excel wherever their strengths may be. Children learn to analyse their preferred learning style and develop their thinking skills, in order that they become more critical and efficient learners.
