Welcome to the Junior School
Friends’ Junior School prides itself on its friendly, family feel. The school has outstanding facilities, including an indoor swimming pool and is set in extensive grounds. Children enjoy participating in a wide variety of subjects and activities enhanced by the use of Senior School facilities and expertise.
The Quaker ethos underpins all of our pastoral work and every member of staff looks for ‘that of God’ in each and every child. Here at Friends’ children are nurtured, supported and encouraged to reach their full potential in all aspects of school life. They are encouraged to stretch themselves to ensure they produce their very best results both in academic and pastoral pursuits. Our aim is to foster a real love of learning and thirst for knowledge that will see them through their whole school career and beyond.
Music and sport opportunities are abundant at Friends’ and are key, along with our Forest School, in helping the children develop confidence and independence. Paradoxically, these characteristics also help them begin to understand the importance of teamwork and responsibility in respect of their peers.
I hope that as you explore these pages you will begin to discover what makes Friends’ Junior School so special. Please do come and visit the school and meet our children and staff. You will be assured of a warm welcome.
Head of Friends’ Junior School
