At St Louis School the curriculum (what your child learns) is rich and interesting. Our Ofsted Inspection report of March 2010 said it was 'exceptionally well planned in topics so that pupils develop subject knowledge and a range of learning and life skills in a coherent and interesting way'.
All children are taught the core subjects of RE, maths, English, science and IT. Woven into this is the teaching of skills which all children need both while at St Louis and beyond. All other subjects, including how to keep ourselves safe are taught through topics or as separate lessons and more information can be found about this under each Year group heading.
Here are our Year 6 children learning to challenge themselves on their PGL Residential!
An essential part of our curriculum is the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education we provide for our children. This underpins everything we do and our children grow up to be well behaved, respectful of all faiths, cultures and backgrounds. A great emphasis is placed on prayer, reflection and service to others. This is reflected in the way children act, work together and help one another.
A strength of our school is singing and drama. Our KS1 productions have included ‘Rock around the Flock’ and ‘Hosanna Rock’. These types of events allow our children to showcase their acting and singing talents. We have an award winning choir and each year children in Key Stage 2 perform in a Summer production with great success. Previous productions have included ‘Joseph' and 'The Wizard of Oz'. This year saw our most ambitious summer production yet with the children in Key Stage 2 performing 'The Lion King'. Singing in three and four part harmonies, the animals and characters from the Lion King wove their way through the audience bringing gasps of delight. As good as anything on the West End or Broadway the children transported the audience to the Pridelands of Africa. The colourful costumes and masks brought the story alive to the packed audiences. Mrs Louisy, proud Head Teacher praised the children for their hard work, outstanding talent and commitment to themselves and to their school. The Love was certainly being felt as the Lion King ROARED!
