The traditional academic disciplines, including Latin and Greek, are complimented by Music and Drama, Art and Design and Outdoor Education, as well as a varied Sports programme with games every afternoon for all. Computers and ICT are seen as a vital component of a Cargilfield education, but never as an end in themselves. There are over 60 iPads throughout the school and these are being used more and more to enhance children’s learning.
Pupils’ progress is monitored from an early age to ensure that potential is fulfilled and any difficulties are identified as early as possible.
This progress is regularly assessed, both formally and informally, and parents are kept up-to-date about levels of effort and attainment through the reporting system and pattern of regular parent-teacher meetings.
Parents are encouraged to discuss their children’s progress with staff at any time.
Pupils are prepared for entry to a wide range of senior schools across the UK and considerable success is achieved. They gain entry either through the Common Entrance or Scholarship examinations and awards gained may be Academic, Sport, Music, DT, Drama or All Rounder.
