General Information

At Spring Grove we specialise in free-range children: we will develop all who join Spring Grove to their full potential – academically, socially, physically and emotionally in a supportive, caring and friendly community. We are able to do this because we have small classes in which our children receive expert attention.

Within a beautiful rural setting our school is small enough for us to know every child and their family and encourage them to support the school motto of “Always Do Your Best”. Our children are happy and confident and the school owns a wonderful family atmosphere but to find out what we are really about, you need to pay us a visit.

We are a recognised member of the IAPS and offer a wide range of subjects and extra-curricular activities.

Up until Prep 3 science is taught by the form teacher. From Year 3 onwards the children are taught by a specialist science teacher in a purpose-built laboratory. The syllabus is based on the 11+ Common Entrance which stretches the more capable children. Our emphasis is on enjoyable practical lessons encouraging a sense of enquiry and giving the children lots of opportunities to explore and experiment. Outside class lessons, Science clubs give pupils an opportunity to experience topics that lie beyond the scope of the syllabus like surface tension, hydroponics, acids and alkalis and elements. We also have a flourishing Science and Technology Club where children can experience additional skills including robotics, bridge building, model car design, electronics and computer control.

The Music Room incorporates a large teaching and orchestral space. We offer lessons on violin, cello, guitar, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, recorder, drums and piano. We have string, brass, wind, percussion and recorder ensembles, a prize winning jazz band and an orchestra of over 25 musicians. 80% of children in Years 2 to 6 are learning a musical instrument. Everyone sings!

We have a specialist Art & Design Room, Drama is taught alongside English and French is taught from Nursery to Prep 6 with our annual trip to the Château de la Baudonnière in Normandy.
