Joining our school


There are currently four classes based on the Sandgate site, and four at Sandgate at QKS. All our classes are named after Lake District mountains, starting with Catbells, for the youngest children, going through to Scafell for our oldest young people.

Pupils are placed in class groups according to their age (see the prospectus for more details), and there are between six and twelve pupils in a group, with larger groupings more likely higher up the school. Each class is led by a teacher, supported by a team of teaching assistants. As pupils progress through the school, a member of staff from the current team will move with them, to ensure   continuity of practice.
