Core Subjects




English lessons take account of speaking and listening, reading, writing, grammar,  phonics and spelling/vocabulary every day. Children are taught as either a whole class, in small groups according to their ability, or in sets. This may be either reading/writing or spelling, depending on the teaching focus.


The school aims to give children an enjoyment of mathematics and to make the work both fun and relevant to the world outside, without compromising standards of attainment.


Science education at Exwick Heights emphasises the practical nature of the subject. The school aims to develop children’s understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science to enable them to answer questions about the world around them. The school strives to ensure children are equipped with the scientific knowledge they require to understand the uses of science in today’s world and that of the future.
