With two children at The Grange, both who started in Reception, I am in the privileged position to share my perspective on the school as both a parent as well as the Head. I know that The Grange Junior School provides an outstanding start to any child’s educational journey.
We understand the importance of these formative years in the development of each young person and want every child to develop a love for school and a love for learning - to be able to live their education. From Reception, at age 4, where we begin to encourage and nurture the potential of each child, through to Year 6, where enjoyment of learning is fuelled with challenge, risk and diversity, we instil the values, skills and understanding of the world that will last each child a lifetime.
Our children make exceptional progress and develop a strong sense of self from a very early age. We achieve this by offering outstanding pastoral care, a stimulating academic programme and a huge variety of enrichment activities, all delivered in impressive, modern facilities. Yet it is the warm, caring and thoughtful relationships that we develop with every child and their parents that we believe are the most important asset to ensuring educational success and happiness.
The pages on our website will give you a sense of what is offered at the school and may even do justice to the friendly, vibrant and purposeful atmosphere that prevails. I would encourage you to come and visit us: there is no substitute for experiencing first-hand what makes The Grange Junior School such a special place to learn for each and every child.
We look forward to welcoming you very soon.
Mr Guy Rands
Head of The Grange Junior School
