During their time in Class 2, the children are gradually encouraged to become more independent as they begin to interact with the Prep School to make their transition a smooth but exciting one.
This is a significant time in the development of our pupils and we aim to make their move up the school as stress-free as possible. Year 3 & 4 (known at Abberley as Form One & 2) are situated in a cosy area referred to as 'The Palace'.
There are three full-time members of staff in the Palace who get to know the children well. In the summer term the children attend a 'Move up' afternoon where they familiarise themselves with The Palace and their Form Tutor. There is also a ‘New Pupils Day’ in June which is a fun event and an opportunity to meet new pupils who may be joining the school.
