BUILDING FOUNDATIONS

Ficino School aims to foster strong relationships between the children, parents and their class teacher; with both parents and teachers working together to help the children reach their potential.

Our structured classroom settings and clear school values help establish important foundations during your child’s formative years.  Class sizes average around 20 students, with all classes focusing on the development of the whole child.

In the junior school our students learn English and Maths following the Cambridge Curriculum – mental agility is practised in mathematics and students learn to speak, read and write with heart and clarity.  Science is based in awe and wonder and our expanded curriculum includes a unique History, Myth and Culture programme, music, the arts, singing and drama. 

Nourishing school meals and a specialist PE programme develop skills and provide for the students’ physical needs.

While Ficino School made a conscious decision to provide its students with a technology-free education in their early years, we are also aware that digital technologies are an important part of our modern world.  Technology is introduced into classroom learning from Year 5, ensuring children are on par with their peers by the time they reach high school.  This enriches rather than replaces Ficino’s teacher-led learning.
