The Buchan School's Open Morning will be held on Saturday 10th October. Tours of the school and The Buchan Nursery are at 10am. For children age 2 to 11.
The preparatory years of schooling provide the foundation on which the building blocks of education, learning, creativity and curiosity are developed. At The Buchan School we aim, through small classes, specialist subject teaching, individual support and a wide and varied extracurricular programme, to make this foundation as strong as possible.
"Children in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) show a consistent enthusiasm for their learning as a result of excellent teaching which gives individual support and encouragement as required." *
"Pupils throughout the school are positive, focused and eager to learn, often showing exemplary approach to their study." *
"They develop existing interests and discover new ones as a result of the exceptional variety of choices offered to them." *
