Starting Senior Primary is a big step and an exciting time for scholars. One where they begin to become independent.
The Senior Primary is a warm, welcoming, busy and vibrant environment in which scholars are encouraged to aim for the highest standards in all that they do and to set the kind of example that they would also wish to follow.
Senior Primary is an exciting adventure for our scholars, a springboard for their hopes and dreams, opening their eyes to new subjects and possibilities that should develop their self-confidence and character.
Our Senior Primary boasts a rich and stimulating curriculum where academic excellence is balanced with a wealth of exciting co-curricular opportunities. The scholars continue to study the Cambridge International Primary Programme, bringing their learning to life through cross-curricular termly units of work and developing their understanding of the world around them.
Our scholars develop their appetite for learning and we encourage them to set academic goals and pursue all that Wembley College has to offer in sport, drama, art and music.
The Cambridge International Primary Programme mainly focuses on English, Mathematics and Science.
Cambridge Primary English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop the critical skills to respond to a range of information, media and texts with understanding and enjoyment. Learners who follow this curriculum framework will develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding.
The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: number, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.
This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning, investigating, recording and analysing data. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum.
We are sure that a visit to Wembley College will enable you to experience for yourselves why we think that the Senior Primary is a very special place indeed. Please feel free to contact our office for details on how to make an appointment.
