In Key Stage One, while the emphasis remains on the acquisition of literacy and numeracy skills, the girls experience a curriculum rich in Science, Humanities and Creative Arts and most importantly fun.

Each form teacher works with her class to encourage a love of learning and build on the curiosity and interests fostered in the early years at St Catherine’s. Pupils are also taught to take more responsibility for their own learning, and visits and excursions from local galleries to the beach provide enrichment activities that support a stimulating and exciting curriculum. Specialist teaching in French, music, swimming, physical education and information technology continues and many pupils enjoy individual instrumental lessons and the wide range of after school activities available.
