Learn theBell Way
We teach inside and outside the classroom.
Our unique learning approach – The Bell Way – is core to everything we do at Bell. It was developed by our academic team alongside an Emeritus Professor from the University of Cambridge. It is based on six core principles that shape all our programmes.
Our curriculum starts with the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) framework in Nursery to Primary Reception and progresses to the Key Stage 1 curriculum in Primary Year 1 and Year 2 – a standard set across all schools in England.
With key principles of the Bell Way underpinning everything they do, your child will be encouraged to aim high, exceed their expectations and develop a strong foundation of life-long skills for learning, life and work.
