We choose to reconfigure all classes annually from Nursery to the start of Year 5 because it allows the children to get to know the whole year group better and broaden friendship groups, thereby helping with the social cohesion and mutual respect which we value so highly at Lady Barn.

In their final two years (Years 5 & 6) the children stay in the same form group with their form teacher as they prepare for the senior school entrance exams.
