About St Neot’s School Life – Academics.
At St Neot's we adopt a child-centered approach to teaching and learning; every individual who passes through the School flourishes both personally and educationally.
Our pupils participate in an engaging curriculum that inspires independent thinking and intellectual curiosity. We support every child to achieve their full potential; to thrive in an ethos of support and to be challenged and encouraged to succeed. Through the PSB, we aim to provide an outstanding education for life. We focus on the active development and assessment of six core, transferable skills: communication, collaboration, leadership, independence, reviewing and improving; and thinking and learning.
The development of our academic programme is an enriching and well-planned curriculum journey. Our academic programme is based upon the National Curriculum guidelines and ISEB 13+ syllabus, which ensures that our pupils' needs are met. We incorporate opportunities for exciting trips, outdoor learning and thematic approaches. Lessons are differentiated and tailored to meet the needs of the students; smaller classes are designed to provide targeted teaching to accelerate progress.
Scholarship sessions are designed to stretch our students and prepare them for scholarship exams. At St Neot’s, pupils are successful in gaining entrance to their first school of choice. We have awarded more than 30 scholarships in a wide variety of areas including academic, art, music and sport in the past two years. With a focus towards a 13+ exit point via PSB or scholarship routes, we give children the opportunities and environment they need to grow into confident and resourceful young people.
