The Junior Department in Maple House
Enter Maple and you are hit with light, colour and space; the perfect environment for children from the age of seven to experience a rigorous education. Discipline is a given when children have the space to grow and expectations to live up to. Catering for auditory, visual and kinaesthetic learners, flair is the order of every day. Life is never dull in Maple!
Junior Bromsgrovians are fortunate to learn in purpose-built classrooms, each enjoying its own patio, interactive whiteboard and ‘wet’ area. A set of laptop computers, linked to the school intranet, internet and printer is shared between the Years 3 and 4 classes as are book areas and tactile display spaces.
In both Years 3 and 4 there are three classrooms. The children are generally taught in parallel groups by experienced and enthusiastic primary teachers. There are four Year 5 classrooms which are used as a base for the children. As a step towards specialist subject teaching, the children in this year group move between lessons to subject teachers in all areas of the school. The children experience a transition between primary and secondary teaching techniques. They are nurtured through this journey by supportive tutors and the Head of Year 5
