From Years 3 to 6, children continue to have a form teacher but are taught by specialist subject teachers.

Herries pupils work in an atmosphere that encourages achievement in the classroom and beyond. Our aim is to develop the ability to work independently and to this end we set regular homework tasks, appropriate to the age of the child and their abilities and interests.

The core subjects of English and Mathematics are taught on a daily basis and Science twice weekly. In small classes, the children have weekly sessions of French, Geography, History and Religious Education, PSHEE, Music, Art, Design Technology and ICT, PE and Sport.
