Juniors

In Years 3, 4, 5, 6, girls are taught by highly experienced form teachers and also by subject specialists in Science, French, Art, Music, ICT and Physical Education.

French, as a curriculum subject, is introduced in Year 3.  We find that girls rapidly develop their vocabulary and conversational skills as they move through Key Stage 2.

Girls have Science lessons in a dedicated Junior School Science laboratory, which allows plenty of opportunity for the practical experiments that are an essential element of the scheme of work.  Computing, digital literacy and information technology is taught in the Senior School Computing suite, which is exceptionally well equipped and there are also computers in every classroom for further independent research and practice of skills.

Specialist PE staff encourage the girls to participate in a wide variety of sports and games; many girls become members of school teams and enjoy participating in tournaments and sporting fixtures.

Francis Holland Junior School achieves high academic standards and has a reputation for excellence at 11+; many of the scholars in the Senior School came up from the Junior School.

The girls' education is complemented by a full and varied range of visits both to local museums, galleries and historical sites, and further afield.  Year 6, for example enjoy visits to a Royal Ballet rehearsal class, the Royal Opera House, the National Gallery and the Imperial War Museum and the Sky TV studios.  They also go to Cornwall on a five day residential activity trip, which not only develops their team and social skills, but is an amazing experience, providing the girls with many wonderful memories.

Juniors also have the benefit of visiting workshops, including The Young Shakespeare Company, and speakers, including authors and musicians.  We have been thrilled to host talks by authors such as Damian Dibben, Tom Percival, Lauren Childs, Jane Hissey, Caroline Lawrence, Emma Shevah, S F Said and Linda Chapman.

Girls are keen to keep trying until they succeed; as a Year 5 pupil said, "If I can't do something, I know it's just that I can't do it YET".
