The Hartland Way
We combine a unique blend of academic challenge, enrichment opportunities and pastoral support to target excellence and create a values based community of teachers, children and parents. This rich combination,
we call “The Hartland Way”.
Learning in Context
Our teachers harness each child’s curiosity, using real life examples to ensure that their lessons are both understood and remembered. Our children are often taught outside of their classrooms with Foundation students searching for letters on the school’s signage whilst Year 3 discover the ways of the Aztecs through hands-on investigations around the school and Year 6 learn how to create an exciting new chocolate bar.
We encourage them to think and to question, equipping them with the skills that they will need to enjoy a successful future. Of course, we also ensure that they have a solid foundation of traditional skills; spelling, grammar and times tables are very much part of our school life.
Enrichment is an Entitlement at Hartland
As part of our curriculum, our children spend four hours per week broadening their knowledge and skills. We encourage students to build both on current talents and work on developing new ones by choosing a balanced range of activities from those on offer.
The Hartland Passport encourages our students to develop a set of values which, when combined with their academic and enrichment skills, will equip them for life.
