    What makes Spring Grove special?

    Sitting in a 14-acre site near to the village of Wye, Spring Grove has a dedicated Music building, brand new English and Maths classrooms, specialist Science and Art rooms, sports facilities including a brand new MUGA and a swimming pool (Summer use only). Our emphasis is on enjoyable, practical lessons delivered by specialist teachers that encourage a sense of enquiry and give the children lots of opportunities to explore and experiment. All children have access to a Google Chromebook, and Google Classroom is used across the school (and for online learning as necessary). French is taught from Nursery to Prep 6, with an annual trip to Château de la Baudonnière in Normandy for the older children.

    Music, Art and Drama are particular strengths – our Music Room incorporates a large teaching and orchestral space, and we offer individual lessons on a wide range of instruments. Nearly all children from Year 2 to Prep 6 learn a musical instrument. Everyone sings!

    Forest School is a major part of life for all children from Reception to Prep 6 at Spring Grove (with Beach school in the Summer). Since opening in 2016, our Forest School has won a series of awards, and it is now an integrated part of the curriculum at school. Spring Grove is also an Eco-Schools Green Flag School in recognition of the school’s excellence in environmental action and learning.
