Above all, we believe in making learning fun. We believe in engendering a love of lifelong learning in every child that passes through the school.Small class sizes, excellent teaching and an insistence on traditional values of hard work and good manners help all pupils at The Old School Henstead to achieve high academic standards.

We cater for pupils of all abilities, offering specialist support where needed at both ends of the ability spectrum.

Early Years and Key Stage 1 classes (Reception, Years 1 and 2) are taught in their class base by their class teacher for the majority of subjects. From Year 3 onwards (Key Stage 2) the majority of subjects are taught by subject  teachers.
