Patcham Junior School is a three form entry Junior School occupying a large building which provides a varied and stimulating environment for our pupils. We have a music room, an ICT Suite, twelve class bases and three halls. On site we have two playgrounds, an environmental garden, an adventure playground and extensive playing fields.
Pupil numbers at this school have, in general, been rising for the past few years. In September 2013 we expect an intake of 96 children by arrangement with the LA. Classes throughout the school are organised into single age classes with three per year group – year 3, 4, 5 and 6. According to present figures, class sizes should be around 32 pupils throughout the school. Children spend one year with their class teacher before moving on to a new teacher in the following September.
We currently also have specialist teachers for Music, French and RE, who work with the children on a weekly basis.
