Stepping Up

At Caxton College we know that choosing the right school for your child´s learning journey is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. To assist you in the decision-making process we have developed an induction programme, Stepping Up, for children and parents.

Our aim is to give you and your child a real flavour and insight into the exciting educational opportunities that result in your child discovering a love for learning from a very early age, in a play-based environment where they learn through direct, first-hand experiences whilst also connecting with nature in our extensive outdoor facilities. In addition, by discovering more about school your child will feel more secure and therefore more willing to learn and grow.

The Stepping Up events provide a wealth of information and opportunities to help you and your child to prepare for school and life at Caxton College.  The events include an interactive webinar with our Early Years teachers and leaders where you will learn about the children’s day to day at school, as well as fun classes with our Early Years Music and Sports specialists and even a typical morning at school.

If you haven´t already done so, please feel free to book an onsite or online tour with our admissions department to see what a wonderful place Caxton College is to learn.
