Prep - Upper School
Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, for 8 to 11 year olds
In Upper School, our main aim is to equip pupils with the intellectual qualities and skills that will help them to thrive in a changing world and allow them to seize future opportunities. We encourage collaboration, resilience, sound judgement and curiosity, and develop a healthy attitude towards risk.
Senior School Heads often comment on the maturity of Greenfield pupils, which we attribute to our focus on the development of intellectual character as well as compassion, empathy and modesty. We believe that allowing children the freedom to explore a diverse curriculum helps to build effective and committed learners. Lessons are challenging, but this allows even our brightest pupils to work outside their comfort zone and develop a commitment to succeed.
"For the last few years, all pupils leaving Year 6 have secured places at senior schools of their choice, many of which have high standards of entry, with a high proportion gaining scholarships." - ISI Inspection Report March 2016
