Leaving the security of home and preschool and moving on to begin Primary School is a big step. At Springbank, your child will be cared for and nurtured from their very first day at school. We encourage you to visit Springbank so that you and your child can feel comfortable with the change, and excited by the future.
Junior School Programme
Springbank’s Junior School programme for Year 1-6 students includes:
- Outstanding, experienced and inspiring teachers at every age level
- A home teacher, supported with specialised teaching in subjects such as Physical Education, ICT, Science, Enterprise Studies, German and Spanish
- The Cambridge International Primary Programme (CIPP) teaching Mathematics, Science and English
Our Junior School has a strong Academic emphasis on reading, oral and written language and mathematical fluency. Children are taught essential computer skills from the time they first start school, and further subjects such as Social Studies, Thinking Skills and a Second Language (German, Spanish, French or Japanese) strengthen their overall academic foundation.
To further build your child’s character and confidence at a young age, we have a strong focus on Physical Education, Fitness, Personal Development, Music, Enterprise Studies and the Arts (dance, drama, practical art).
Cambridge Primary Checkpoint
In Year 6, the final year of Primary School, students sit the Cambridge International Primary Checkpoint test and they receive Certificates of Achievement which show their performance. Student results are issued a grade, with 6.0 being the highest grade and 0.0 being the lowest grade. A grade of 3.0 is considered ‘average’ for Year 6.
