"Throughout the school, including the EYFS (EArly Years Foundation Stage), the quality of the pupils’ achievements is excellent. Pupils of all abilities are highly successful in their learning. The school successfully meets its aims to help pupils learn the habits and rewards of hard work and careful study, thus preparing them to gain places at the senior school of their choice. Pupils benefit from a curriculum and wide range of extra-curricular activities that prepare them thoroughly for their senior schools. A small number of aspects of the curriculum, including cross-curricular links and extension work, are somewhat limited in the Upper School, where work is more focused on examinations. Pupils are confident and enthusiastic learners. All benefit from excellent teaching, including opportunities for independent learning, meeting a recommendation of the previous inspection, as with marking, which is nearly always regular and positive. From the EYFS onward, support for pupils with SEND or EAL is well structured and effective. More able and talented pupils are offered opportunities to tackle suitably challenging tasks. Assessment is used effectively to identify pupils’ individual needs and track their progress."
