At Glenfrome, we teach children to be independent, confident learners, using ‘learning powers’ to help them achieve. They know how to challenge themselves, what to do if they get ‘stuck’, and that making mistakes is a brilliant way to learn.
Our exciting outdoor spaces are our secret weapon – one of the things that makes us unique. As well as extensive grounds, we are within walking distance of Purdown, Snuff Mills and Eastville Park, and make good use of these spaces to enhance the children’s learning.
A Forest School
Our Forest School programme gives all children access to the local woods, to explore and be curious about the environment. Learning is hands-on and child-led, improving spatial awareness, motor development and team work. High adult:child ratios mean that children can safely experience exciting activities like climbing trees or lighting fires.
We are proud of our children’s musical talent and currently offer music tuition in recorder, violin, drumming, singing and guitar. Watch out for the Glenfrome Orchestra performing in a venue near you soon!
Recent visits include the M Shed to learn about the Slave Trade; @Bristol to study the solar system; Bristol Zoo to explore habitats and mini beasts; and The Red Lodge to experience Tudor life.
We regularly welcome visitors into school to engage and inspire us all, from African drummers to theatre groups, Indian dancers to Meet-a-Medic; we aim to give children both aspirational and inspirational experiences.
