Set in an environment that buzzes with energy, excitement, curiosity and a sense of discovery, the junior school offers a challenging, inspirational and all-round education as well as providing the important bridge to our senior school.
Our aim is to inspire and develop curious, confident and collaborative learners who naturally make links between subjects, topics and themes, who are comfortable with technology and who relish a challenge.
Our unique Thinking Skills programme was originally pioneered to develop and enhance our pupils’ ability to be logical, critical and creative thinkers. We aim to equip our girls with the vital life skills that enable them to conquer any future challenges. Girls are encouraged to gain a deeper understanding of their own preferred learning styles and to become familiar with a range of study and revision strategies.
Our Philosophy for Children sessions develop the girls’ ability to think with philosophical maturity. Our Junior School Resilience Programme provides an integral part of the Northwood College for Girls’ curriculum offer.
Intellectual curiosity and in-depth learning is encouraged by providing opportunities for research homework, open-ended investigations and for collaborative learning.
