At St. Michael’s School, we believe that class size is very important to your child’s education. For this reason, we have limited our class sizes to a maximum of 20 students from Reception to Year 6 classes.

What are the Advantages of Small Class Sizes?

You probably know that schools with small class sizes are more desirable than schools with large ones; but what exactly is it about small classes that are so impressive? Why do you want that for your child? Here are some advantages:

  • More one-to-one attention from the teacher to enhance pupils’ strengths and improve their weaknesses
  • Pupils get to know each other better
  • Teachers can tailor individual instruction and can work with each pupil to ensure they are getting the instruction they need
  • Less disruption
  • More time for teaching
  • For a pupil with attention issues, a busier class can mean the difference between a lesson that is completely understood and one that they do not understand

That is why small class sizes are so important at St. Michael’s: to help ensure success. Is St Michael’s the right school for your child? Contact our Registrar, Mrs Lorraine Kipps, on 01702 416310 or today for more information.
