Junior School Curriculum

Through the exciting curriculum Exeter Junior School develops the academic, personal and physical potential of each pupil in the school. Our academic and pastoral teams operate side by side to monitor, guide and support pupils and to ensure that parents are well informed. We believe that happy, healthy pupils make the best progress.

Exeter School takes a 7 – 18 view in planning our academic curriculum. The large number of additional opportunities for academic enrichment is of great value and participation is very much encouraged and enjoyed by our pupils. The development of study skills, independent thought and personal reflection is a key factor in making excellent academic progress and is embedded in all that we do.

Pupils enjoy their lessons delivered by our team of supportive and professional teachers. They make the most of our own well-stocked library that provides an exciting modern resource centre to support pupils both in their academic work and in their extra-curricular activities and interests. In the junior school we have our own dedicated ICT, STEAM and art rooms. Music lessons happen in the senior school music school with our own specialist junior school music teacher. To help foster an early love of science children in Upper Two (Year 6) are taught in the senior school science laboratories with senior school science teachers.

Across the school we develop the key transferrable skills needed for the future. There number of activities including visits to employers and business games including the Virgin Make £5 Grow activity. We enjoy visits from authors who inspire pupils with their stories and career journeys.

Possible loss of functionality to our portals

Please note that there is a widespread technical issue with CrowdStrike’s software which has led to a global outage affecting various sectors, including planes, railways, and iSAMS servers and communications. This may mean that parents of the school might not be able to use their parent portal currently and some other parts of our site might not work as well as they normally do.

We urge you to take a well-earned break and check back in on Monday when hopefully things will be working again.
