Caldicott has excellent academic results for Scholarship and Common Entrance. Complete results are available for almost all years since 1979.
At Caldicott the class size is small - never more than 18, and more usually a dozen or a few more - so that individual attention can always be given to the boys. They are setted for many subjects, and from September 2008, with the addition of extra classrooms and staff, there will be four sets in the Senior School, giving greater opportunity for the best teaching at your son's level. This ensures that every boy is comfortable, yet still stretched academically according to his current achievement. Boys mature at different ages, so in this way we give the flexibility to move between sets without fuss, and at the appropriate time.
We exceed the National Curriculum. Latin is started at the beginning of the Middle School, and some boys learn Greek. The boys work hard, but they enjoy learning, and Study Skills, Current Affairs, educational visits and lectures from outside speakers mean that there is lots of variety. All prep (homework) is done in school, so you can enjoy your time at home with your son.
