Younger children are well-served by the co-educational Elizabeth College Junior School (ECJS), which is located on a site half a mile away from the main Elizabeth College campus.
The Pre-School and Pre-Preparatory School are situated at Acorn House. Children from the ages of two and a half through to seven attend these departments of the Junior School.
The Preparatory School, Beechwood, prepares pupils for entry to the Upper School or the local girls’ schools, as appropriate, at the age of 11.
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? Whilst it is true that the 3 Rs remain the cornerstone of our provision, in the 21st Century, resilience, teamwork and communication top the list of desirable attributes by employers. These are 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.
