Juniors

Juniors Department

The Juniors section of the school includes Key Stages 1 and 2, following on seamlessly from the EYFS stage. The students continue their learning and social development through the carefully planned programmes of study and activities that ensure fulfilment, enjoyment and success, thereby developing the skills, knowledge and self-confidence necessary for Secondary School and life in general. The development of communication skills is fundamental, with the solid foundations laid for the students to become truly bi-lingual.

Learning focusses on developing personal, emotional and social skills as well as being an intellectual and academic process. We help children find their voice – their own, unique, personal significance. We encourage them to think about their contribution to the world – how to be responsible and engaged members of the school community, as well as developing into responsible world citizens. We regularly work with charities to raise money for those less fortunate.

Values such as compassion, respect and friendliness are central, as are clear boundaries and simple rules that help to ensure that BSGC is a happy and safe place to learn. We expect our children to work hard, but also to enjoy themselves, whilst holding high expectations with regard to morals and manners. We believe in catching children being good and celebrating positive achievement and behaviours.

Children have numerous opportunities to extend their learning through planned excursions and residential trips, culminating in a weeklong trip to Cornwall, England at the end of Year 6. Our children participate enthusiastically in a variety of inter-school sports events on the island. Further, the children regularly share their talents, skills and knowledge during regular musical and dramatic performances and assemblies.
