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 crucial 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.
The children are organised into four houses - Yellow (Cambridge), Red (Dawson), Blue (Hawks) and Green (Villiers). 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.
Our Year 6 children are encouraged to share in the responsibility of running the school and being role models to younger children at all times.
Children have to apply for these roles and go though an application, presentation and interview process.
