The Nightingale House curriculum is broad, balanced and challenging. Girls are taught a traditional curriculum devoted to academic rigour and acceleration in literacy and numeracy in the morning, with a full range of creative and investigative subjects taught in the afternoon by specialist teachers.
The afternoons are devoted to sport, STEM (science, coding and engineering), music, French and the arts; all taught by specialist teachers.
Healthy living is a key focus for the school so the sports provision includes weekly PE, healthy living sessions and swimming lessons, taught in small groups at the pool complex of The Mall School.
All pupils continue to benefit from lessons in Philosophy for Children which develop critical thinking skills and help children become active listeners and collaborative workers. We have found that this encourages positive outcomes in many other areas of life from improved concentration and motivation to learn, to co-operative and social skills, all of which help prepare for opportunities of the future.
