Academic Life

The joy of an academic life at Haddon Dene

We understand that it is important for our teachers to promote the joy of learning in order to inspire and encourage your child to reach their full potential.

Our curriculum is based on a traditional approach to learning. Specialist teachers teach your child for drama, French, music, PE, and games. We understand that success in these subjects can’t be achieved without a strong academic foundation.

This is why, as well as offering a broad and varied curriculum, we give strong priority to reading, writing, numeracy, and comprehension. Our teachers work to regularly monitor your child’s progress, allowing for any difficulties with an aspect of learning to be identified, and your child supported.

“Explicit teaching of grammar and punctuation gives pupils a firm grounding in these skills, enabling them to complete various tasks and exercises accurately.” (Ofsted 2016)
