Junior School

Join Our School

This page is intended for Year 2 families who are looking to join our school in September 2021.

Hello and welcome to Firside Junior School. 

We believe that every child deserves the best education possible and we aim to provide just that. To achieve this ambition we are committed to delivering a first class curriculum which meets the needs of every pupil. This is delivered within a stimulating environment where children can enjoy learning and where they are supported to develop, thrive and do well.  

At Firside, we believe that education should be concerned with every aspect of a child’s development, and we provide a wide-ranging set of planned learning opportunities for pupils to experience. We want to help every child to reach their full potential and to become the best they can be. Our approach is to give children a sense of purpose, to build their confidence and to help them develop the abilities they will need to realise their ambitions. As well as successful learning, we support children to acquire the attitudes, knowledge, understanding and skills they will need to become confident individuals and responsible citizens.   

We regard our partnership with families as vital for every child’s success. With your support, we know we can equip your child to make the most of the many opportunities ahead of them. Together, we can prepare them well for the challenges of their future learning, their careers and their role in the community.
