Class Sizes

There is a maximum of 24 in the Caterpillar classroom.

There is a maximum of 35 in the Butterfly group.

This may strike parents as a big jump from Caterpillars, but mostly the children work in smaller groups of 8/9.  For specialist subjects like PE, Music and French the Butterfly class works in two groups of 16/17.  Our staff to child ratio is always 1:6.

Working as a larger group gives the children the feel of a Reception Class which helps their school readiness.  In addition, we are blessed with large, bright, airy classrooms so there is ample space to accommodate the children.
