“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” – T. S. Eliot
Our Explore term is a time full of adventure and excitement. Through the teaching of geography, design and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), we want to expose our children to endless opportunities to inquire. Our curriculum is designed to instil in pupils a curiosity of the world which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them for further education and beyond.
They acquire new knowledge and skills whilst working independently and together, as develop the resilience and passion to create their own projects from thought, to paper, to reality. We teach them how to take pride in the process it took to get there, not just the result.
During our Explore term Braywick students will become intrepid explorers ready to take on the world they live in!

Our STEM-based education teaches children far more than science, technology, engineering and mathematical concepts. With a focus on hands-on learning and real world applications it develops life-long skills such as curiosity, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication and collaboration.
We believe that geography helps to raise questions and provide answers about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of our plnet, as well as their place in it.
Our geography curriculum enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas such as their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Geography helps children to make sense of the world around them, and piques their curiosity in places and people. It engages our pupils, often spurring them into action as future custodians of our planet!
Our Design and technology curriculum allows our children’s imagination to run wild. They will be challenged to solve problems and enjoy experimentation to find answers. Our framework is for them to be free from inhibitions and fear of failure and simply experience, in order to grow their knowledge.
Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn. – Xunzi, confucian philosopher
