Academic Excellence

Specialists in the primary years

Mylnhurst’s exceptional reputation is built largely upon our academic record. Year upon year, our pupils leave us to go on to their first choice of secondary school, often with a scholarship in hand. We are specialists in the primary years, ensuring that all our time and attention is spent on enabling our pupils to reach their full potential so that, wherever they move on to when they leave us, they have the strongest foundations to build upon.

We believe that a child’s primary education is the most important: this is where good habits are formed, confidence is built and the foundation stones are laid for future. In these precious formative years, children will often discover their passions and these decisions can determine the direction they choose to take in later life. They are inspired by teachers who are passionate about their respective subjects but are also expert in the pedagogy of teaching children.

At Mylnhurst, opportunity is key. Our children are given the chance to try everything and to test themselves in a safe and secure environment. Our academic curriculum is challenging and inspiring in equal measure. The latest technology is used to enhance learning: pupils create stop-motion videos to describe life-cycles in science; iPads are used to record dances in performing arts, which are cast through Apple TV to the Smart Boards for instantaneous peer-assessment; Google Classroom is integrated across the curriculum, including our virtual library!

With the benefit of an exceptional Learning Support department and a dedicated Teaching Assistant in each class, every pupil gets the individualised support that he or she needs to make excellent progress and achieve their full potential.
