The happiness of our pupils is paramount at High March as we believe that this underpins every aspect of their daily lives. A happy child who feels valued will thrive and learn. To this end we encourage a close partnership between home and school so that we can work together for the benefit of each child. One of the comments often made by visitors to the School is that the children look very happy and actively engaged in their learning in a positive way.
From a child's first days in Nursery she is nurtured and cared for by highly qualified staff. Throughout the school the role of the form teacher is key to a child's development as they interact on a daily basis. The staff role model our high expectations, and values such as courtesy and respect are highly regarded.
Helpful and kind behaviour is rewarded with praise and house points can be earned in Upper School which culminate in individual certificates and count towards the coveted House Cup which is awarded each half term.
Our aim is to produce confident, articulate and well rounded pupils who are ready for the next stage of their education. To achieve this, every pupil in Year 6 is given a position of responsibility. From Head Girl, Games and Swimming Captain to Form Prefect, Art Prefect or Junior Road Safety Officer, we try to match the talents and interests of our pupils with a role in which they can assume some leadership.
Above all, at High March "Kindness and friendship is the rule".
