Littlegarth encourage excellence for the future

Year 6 Littlegarth children will approach the challenges of 2016 with quiet determination, safe in the knowledge that they have been well prepared for whatever challenge comes their way. Results from the past five years highlight outstanding successes with over 100 Littlegarth children gaining scholarship awards to independent schools and a high proportion also gaining places at our prestigious grammar schools. Results this year already look extremely promising.

Littlegarth moved from Dedham to Horkesley Park, Colchester over twenty years ago and the school has just celebrated its 75th Anniversary with a wide range of activities involving past and present friends. 2016 will be one of the most exciting years in the history of Littlegarth as the school embarks on a building project that will see the children benefit from a significant number of new facilities including six classrooms, a library incorporating extra IT facilities, art and DT facilities, a learning support centre and a performing arts department incorporating specialist music and drama facilities.

Littlegarth Headmaster, Peter Jones, feels that the new build will help the children become even more successful. He says: “each child is unique and our teachers work extremely hard to identify where individual strengths lie. Our broad and balanced curriculum ensures that all our children are provided with numerous opportunities to succeed across a wide range of curriculum subjects. The excellent new facilities will only serve to enhance the learning experience of each child and we are all looking forward to seeing our School develop in such an exciting way in 2016”.
