Happily into School
By providing a happy start to school life in our specially built and equipped Chanel House, Brigidine School nurtures a real enthusiasm for learning. Our children benefit from the encouragement and reassurance that are so important to small children setting off into the big wide world.
Safe and Sound
In our secure and caring environment, children feel safe to experiment and to explore their talents. They grow in confidence and motivation, and with lots of individual attention they build on their pre-reading skills, develop a basic understanding of number and a rich, creative imagination.
Fun and Games
The School ensures that learning is fun by providing an ideal balance of work and play. Each child is valued as she or he develops socially, intellectually and physically. Children forge firm friendships and enjoy joining in the many school opportunities in Drama and Music, and Ballet is offered as a co-curricular activity.
A Watchful Eye
With an ideal pupil-teacher ratio and facilities and resources specifically designed for their age group, Brigidine children’s early experience of school is a rewarding one. Their individual development is closely monitored as they progress towards the next stage.
Nursery* and Reception
In Chanel House there are both girls and boys up to the age of five. Children may join the Nursery at the beginning of the term in which they celebrate their third birthday. They attend either half or full days until moving on to full-time school in Reception following their fourth birthday. They then progress happily into Year 1.
