The Children

Central to our vision at King Athelstan is to ensure the children make good progress and achieve high standards in their academic, personal and social development. We ensure children have a voice and a central role in developing our school for the benefit of the whole community. Through good quality teaching, we nurture their self-belief, personal ambition and a life-long love of learning.

Our school family is a close knit community into which we embrace new families and children. We ensure the children are treated as individuals and put their happiness and welfare at the heart of everything we do.

Healthy competition

The children are organised into four houses - Yellow, Red, Blue and Green. Not only does this help nurture a healthy degree of competition, it also gives the children a sense of belonging up and down the school and not just in their own classes. We also run many of our sporting activities in conjunction with St John's when we join house teams across the two schools. The children get to make new friends and learn to build teams in different social environments.

Helping to run the school

As well as through The School Council, our older children are encouraged to share in the responsibility of running the school. A Year 6 child will be picked as house captain for each of our houses.

We also have a number of librarians across Years 5 and 6 as well as prefects, "eco stars", ICT technicians, a head boy and a head girl.
