• Reading is at the heart of our curriculum and home-school daily reading continues. When confident, girls are encouraged to choose their own books and to engage with a variety of reading materials.
  • Each day has a literacy and numeracy focus and through topics they learn geography, history, religious studies and craft.
  • More time is dedicated to practical science lessons and computing; art, dance, Spanish, music and sport continue to be taught, establishing a long-term relationship with specialist teachers.
  • In the Lower School, girls traditionally perform a musical Christmas production, a Roald Dahl piece or a selection of musical performances and poetry for the school and their parents.

Key Stage 2

In KS2 the girls continue to become highly independent, developing the confidence, skills and knowledge that thoroughly prepares them for senior school and beyond. We strive for a mastery approach to learning that provides challenge and support where appropriate.


  • A structured, subject-led timetable is introduced with specialist subject teaching across the curriculum.
  • Art, dance, Spanish, music and sport continue to be taught by specialist teachers.
  • Science, religious studies, history and geography become weekly, stand-alone lessons with independent homework to complete during the school day.
  • Culture lessons are added to the curriculum from Lower II.
  • In the Spring Term pupils stage the Middle School Musical, performed jointly by the Transition and Lower II classes and has included performances of classics such as The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland.


  • Latin, French, current affairs and history of art are introduced.
  • Two supervised and independent homework sessions take place each day.
  • In the Spring Term of Upper II we begin senior school conversations with parents, helping them to choose the best route between the 11+ or staying on for Year 7 at our newly founded Senior School.
  • In IIIrd Form, every girl is given a position of responsibility, be it Head Girl, Class Prefect, Librarian, Chronicler, Sports Captain or House Captain.
  • In the Autumn Term, IIIrd Form write their own First World War inspired poetry and stage a Remembrance Assembly for their parents and the school.
  • IIIrd Form girls go on an educational residential visit.
  • In the Summer Term, both year groups stage an Upper School Show, which has previously included Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins.

I think the Village School is everything that you would want in a primary school for girls and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
