Why is Hammond Junior a good school?

The wide and varied curriculum of our school is a real strength and the balance of subjects we teach provides pupils with opportunities to learn in a variety of ways.

 

Come along to our open mornings on June 26 and 27 from 10.30am to 1130am to find out more reasons we are good.


Music teaching is a notable strength and all pupils have the chance to play a range of instrument and say they thoroughly enjoy it.


Leaders at our school ensure subjects are not taught in isolation and there are opportunities to practise skills across the curriculum and, for example, learning in maths is applied in science and design technology lessons.


The introduction of lessons in well-being as well as the termly opportunity to study a subject outside the standard curriculum are just two examples of the way leaders ensure that pupils have wide and varied learning experiences.


In addition there are many other extra-curricular activities available to pupils ranging from sports clubs such as lacrosse and ultimate frisbee to drama and robotics clubs - these are well attended and appreciated by pupils.
