Walton, Jim JF8320S_BW_6072 Welcome from Jim Walton – Headteacher of Elizabeth College Junior School.

I am delighted to welcome you to Elizabeth College Junior School. Appreciating that happy children achieve helps us all to focus on what is most important in the early years of the educational experience for all pupils. I could write about the strengths of our pastoral care systems or academic excellence, but the truth is that children are happy if they make friends at school and if they are treated and treat each other with kindness and compassion. My message to parents, staff and pupils at the beginning of term is always to aim high, be kind and be brave.

But what do the children learn at Elizabeth College Junior School? In years gone by the 3 Rs were in demand from future employers and universities, yet in the 21st Century, resilience, teamwork and communication top the list of desirable attributes. These are the key skills that we aim to develop at Elizabeth College Junior School alongside a love of learning in all its forms.

In aiming high, we seek to ensure that any future successes or happiness, any achievements where children have exceeded their expectations, are because of their time at Elizabeth College Junior School and not in spite of it. The joy of teaching is that all children are different; our challenge is to create an environment in which success for the individual is inevitable.
