Shaping Young Minds

At Rendcomb College Junior School, we strive to develop thoughtful, adventurous and academically ambitious young people who are life-long learners. Whether it be supporting them to develop as individuals or offering pupils the freedom to experience the world around them, we are dedicated to shaping young minds that will continue to succeed long after they leave our classrooms. Offering a curriculum that is both creative and challenging, our pupils benefit from highly qualified and experienced teachers and support staff who provide the opportunity to explore, learn and thrive. 

A Creative Yet Challenging Curriculum

Our Junior School curriculum offers a broad and varied study programme to enable an all-around education in keeping with a common educational, government-approved curriculum. Private junior school pupils benefit from smaller class sizes and a generous teacher-pupil ratio, meaning your child is treated as an individual and is able to progress at a pace that suits them and their development. 


Throughout their time with us, pupils are taught a wide range of subjects using the National Curriculum as a framework. Within this, our focus is on encouraging and motivating your child to learn in a creative and nurturing environment. To view our full junior school curriculum, please click here. Alongside our curriculum, we also offer a range of co-curricular activities for our pupils to enjoy away from the classroom.

Our Junior Forest School

Located in the ‘Wilderness’, our Forest School allows pupils to embrace the natural world in a safe and supportive environment, guided by our fully qualified leaders, all whilst providing them with the freedom to experience unfamiliar challenges.

The learning of our Forest School is based on principles of building confidence, boosting self-esteem and encouraging a love of the natural environment, which we have seen benefit pupils of all ages.
