Building on recent successes, the children and staff of Salterford House are once again getting involved with the many extra-curricular activities offered throughout the school. The school’s netball team was voted as school team of the year by Gedling Sports last term and the current team is preparing for more success with a string of tournaments planned all over the country.
School visits are also on the cards for this term with trips planned to Patchings Art Centre by all year groups, Year 2 are visiting the Making it Centre and the older children are preparing for a week in Normandy where they will be able to take part in canoeing, climbing, archery and a number of other sports- on a French Immersion course. French is taught from Year 2 as part of the curriculum and so the children are well prepared.
Before trips can commence, the Year 6 class must sit their examinations and these are now well underway; several children are sitting exams for both High Schools, Trent College, Queen Margaret’s,York and Ratcliffe College. It is an exciting and stressful time, but the children are well supported with a built in programme of revision and exam technique classes running after school since September.
All the extra work that goes on outside the classroom has allowed the children to develop their individual skills and talents and to ensure high self esteem when tackling academic work. This has resulted in the school achieving a place in the top 100 Independent schools in the country which was recently published in the Sunday Times, something of which the staff and pupils are very proud.
Last year’s National Curriculum tests included 75% level 5 in Maths, 88% level 5 in Grammar and Punctuation and 96% level 5 in Comprehension.
