Library

Martha Morrogh-Ryan

A love of books is an essential part of learning. We do all we can to encourage it and to ensure that the girls are exposed to the widest possible range of literature for all ages. All girls have a weekly Literature class with Lady Colquhoun and our librarian, and are able to borrow freely from the more than 4000 titles in the Upper School library. Carefully structured reading lists are given to the girls, containing many recommended titles suitable for each age group.

ICT

Matilda Bedi

All year groups have weekly practical ICT lessons in our IT suite. We teach the girls how to use the popular software packages as well the basics of computer programming. Many classes book additional time in the IT room so that projects and coursework can be word-processed. In Class 5 all girls complete a touch typing course so that they are competent typists by Class 6.

Assessment and Reports

Internal assessment is an ongoing process with all the girls from the moment they start with us, with progress and achievement being continually monitored.

 

We hold formal exam weeks for all year groups twice each year, with Classes 5, 7 and 8 taking further exams to help the teachers gain a full understanding of how best to help them for their upcoming Common Entrance and to give the girls the further practice they need.
