RATIOS AND SMALL GROUPS
At Kensington School, we have 12 Teaching Assistants from Nursery to Year 2, and more Support Teachers for the British curriculum from Year 1 to Year 9. In addition, we have support teachers in the Spanish curriculum from Year 1 to Year 7. In Pre-Nursery, the ratio is one adult to eight children. From Nursery to Year 2, the children are normally in class with at least two adults: teacher and assistant, with a ratio of 1:13, guaranteeing individual attention. In addition, in Year 10 there are small groups in Maths and Spanish Language, and from Year 10 to Year 13 in English, allowing for groups of 12-15 pupils for these subjects. In French, from Year 8 to Year 13 a native Assistant enables the groups to be split into 5 groups of 10-12 pupils. These are the years in which pupils prepare for the Cambridge, DELF and University entrance (EvAU) examinations, and working in smaller groups enables us to reinforce preparation for these external examinations.
