At All Hallows, the children’s happiness and well-being are paramount in the firm belief that this goes hand in hand with academic achievement. Every child is celebrated for who they are as well as for their achievements along their educational journey. Creativity is at the heart of the curriculum with children being encouraged to think critically and to work individually or collaboratively to come up with original solutions to problems. This distinctive approach to education is producing outstanding results. School minibus services available from the surrounding areas including Bath.
Our Nursery offers an inviting indoor and outdoor environment that has been designed to encourage exploration, creativity and independence. A caring and nurturing approach ensures that each child thrives and develops a real joy of learning.
The Nursery, which is known as The Garden At Kingswood, welcomes children from nine months old and is open for 45 weeks of the year with an option of an extra five. It provides a nurturing, inspiring and challenging environment for children to play, learn and interact with staff and other children.
In the Early Years curriculum, we provide a happy, stimulating, exploratory experience for our children within a unique and secure setting. First and foremost, our aim is for the children to develop important life skills, such as curiosity, creativity, persistence, resilience, imagination, confidence and resourcefulness.
At the Prep School, we have designed our curriculum to capture the fun, inquisitiveness and creativity that we believe should lie at the very core of teaching and learning. We aim to ignite children’s imaginations while simultaneously equipping them with the skills they will need for wherever their life and learning will take them.
We strongly believe that children do not need to be taught, but rather that they need to be developed through inspiring, child-led play.
Every child is unique, with their own interests and strengths, and so they develop best when given the freedom to take charge of their own learning. By surrounding your child’s absorbent mind with inspiring, versatile resources and skillful role models, your child’s play will be nurtured and extended to build them into confident, curious individuals.
We also love to go out exploring. We visit the city farm, the theatre, woods, duck ponds, parks, local shops and anywhere else that piques our interests! At least once a week we visit a local care home for older people. We really immerse ourselves in the local community.
