What makes Hymers College Junior School special?
Within the Junior School we aim to provide a safe, happy and caring environment in which pupils are encouraged to develop and learn. By the time our pupils reach Year 6, they will stand in good stead for not only the Senior School but for life after Hymers College.
Our passion for learning
Our students love to learn. The Junior School Curriculum is designed to provide a thorough grounding in the basic skills which are required throughout education, along with a broad range of subjects which interest and challenge.
As part of the curriculum, our pupils will study English, Mathematics, Science, Music, Design and Technology, ICT, History, Geography, Art, Religious Education, Personal, Social and Health Education, Physical Education, Games, Drama and Swimming.
Pupils in Year 5 and 6 take an introductory course in Modern Languages.
Our extra-curricular programme
Life at Hymers Junior School isn’t confined to the classroom. With a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities taking place during lunch time and after school, every child has the opportunity to try new things; learn new skills and develop their individual talents.
Pupils move from classroom to classroom
Students learn from a variety of teachers in different environments as they transition from one classroom to another depending on the subject. This helps students gain a thorough grounding in a broad range of disciplines.
This provides our students with a real sense of independence which will prepare them for the next stages of their educational journey.
Access to state-of-the-art facilities
Our pupils benefit from having access to a variety of dedicated subject-specific facilities - ranging from all-weather sports pitches to recording studios - which helps to enhance their school experience.
We have a learning support team who organise screening tests for students entering the school in Years 4, 5, 6 and 7. When a pupil is diagnosed with dyslexia or any other recognised learning difficulty, our learning support co-ordinator produces a personal educational plan for the individual, and teachers will also provide help based on the recommendations that have been made.
Junior pupils also receive one-on-one intervention sessions with the learning support assistant. This helps to strengthen pupils’ priority areas of learning and ensures that they fulfil their potential and are happy in their studies.
