An Enriched Curriculum
Our traditional and challenging curriculum stretches children to achieve their best. As an Independent School, we are not restricted by the National Curriculum, and our curriculum is personally structured and, in the later years, geared every step of the way for those who wish to take senior school examinations at 11+. Our staff members at Newbridge have many years of experience preparing girls for entrance examinations, and their professional judgement in this area has a proven track record.
Our pupils have access to many additional lessons in-built into our day to day timetable:
– specialist NATD Dance lessons of 30 minutes per week from Reception upwards, with a formal examination programme from Year One upwards.
– Drama lessons from Year Three upwards of 30 minutes per week, with LAMDA examination programme and Dudley Festival preparation.
– French lessons from Reception upwards of 30 minutes per week, increasing to 60 minutes in Year Six.
– Mindfulness, including meditation, taught as part of the PSHEe programme from Nursery upwards.
