Reception Hertfordshire Reading Test Success!

Congratulations to our Reception pupils who have excelled at the Hertfordshire Reading Test this year. We are incredibly proud to report that 100% of our 4 and 5 year old pupils achieved a reading age of over 7 years old, an average of 2 years above their chronological reading age.  Two pupils achieved a reading age of over 8 years old.

Mr Young, Principal said “Reading is a real strength of our Early Years and Prep Department where we believe that every child should read daily and the success of this ethos is clearly evidenced in these results.  Our phonics programme, which starts in Nursery, provides the pupils with the foundations which allows them to excel in their first year at school and throughout their School life.”
