"The primary school lays down an excellent foundation for basic skills in numeracy and literacy and inspires a love of learning from the outset. Pupils evidently enjoy school , participating wholeheartedly. They are attentive because the curriculum is taught in an engaging way through a thematic and creative approach."

We offer a challenging, fun and inspiring creative curriculum and aspire to ensure that pupils are not only prepared for their next stage of learning but also grow and develop into lifelong learners. Caxton College endeavours to provide:

Inspirational teaching
Excellent pastoral care
Diverse and purposeful enrichment opportunities and experiences
Exceptional facilities

In an increasingly global society core values, principles and beliefs are fundamental so we teach pupils about their human rights as well as the responsibilities they have as global citizens. Knowledge is obviously important but it is the core skills that pupils will draw upon most in their adult lives. As a generation who will have all the information in the world at their fingertips, our core skills and values are essential.

When our current Primary pupils finish their education the world will be a very different place. At Caxton College we strive to prepare all pupils for a fast changing world and have carefully designed our learning journey bearing this in mind. By the end of Primary our pupils:

  • Achieve excellent academic results
  • Know how to respect adults and peers, be well mannered and set a good example for others
  • Understand the merits of pushing themselves to do their very best
  • Know what to do to keep themselves happy and healthy
  • Are ready to take on the challenges of Secondary and beyond!

We invite you to visit us so that you can explore our school, meet our pupils and staff and get a feel for our passion for education.
