Boarding School, Scotland - Lathallan School


Junior School Academic

From Junior 1 to Junior 4, the pupils experience classroom teaching in a wide breadth of subjects, to ensure that their learning is stimulating and challenging as well as giving them a thorough grounding in the basics they will need in later life.  Specialist teachers are used to teach children IT, French, Music and PE.

From Junior 5 to Junior 7 there is an emphasis on developing the depth of a child’s knowledge. The Junior School have specialist teachers in all subjects, who ensure that Lathallan children receive an exemplary education, aiming to prepare children for the step-up to the senior school. The majority of lessons in the Junior School will be taught by experienced, committed teachers, who only teach Junior children; again exemplifying the dedication to each individual pupil that is the cornerstone of a Lathallan education.

There is a strong community spirit in our Junior School.  It is during the school day and beyond that a child’s personal experiences of belonging, sharing, and trusting are developed.  Those older children have the opportunity of becoming prefects or monitors, learning much about taking responsibility and setting an example to others.
