Primary school

Established in 1999, the English National Curriculum Key Stages 1 and 2 are offered to students from age 5 – 11 years. Pinefield is QCA certified and so students in this section end key stage 2 with the UK Sat Examination.

Why us?

The experience we have gained over the years as seasoned educators has helped us know more about how young people learn. We utilize this understanding to meet the individual learning needs of each of our students.

We focus on developing strong literacy and numeracy skills, from the earliest years. In addition, we seek to develop students who are inquisitive and reflective thinkers, effective communicators and problem solvers.

Our extensive curriculum enables the uninhibited development of each student by capturing education in its totality; developing and preparing them for 21st century life, and to compete effectively on national and international stage.
