School Environment

At Belmont we believe that children thrive when they are happy, engaged and challenged, so we have created a nurturing environment where children are kind and love to learn. They are always prepared to give things a go and their enthusiasm, energy and hard work is remarkable.

When you first visit Belmont’s beautiful grounds it quickly becomes apparent that this is more than just a school. Belmont creates an inclusive environment that encourages and inspires boys and girls to ‘Be Kind, Try their Best and Embrace Challenge.’ These three things form the foundation for children to explore their intellectual curiosity in the classroom, perform on stage, or immerse themselves in Belmont’s vast co-curricular programme.

Belmont places Wellbeing at the heart of the school. The school’s compassionate Pastoral Care approach and supportive staff see every day as an opportunity, a chance to grow and a chance to learn. Staff take the time to get know every child individually, allowing children to feel happy and safe in their surroundings, leading to outstanding academic performance. This is reciprocated when children from across all age groups look to support and care for each other.

Our classrooms are full of energy, curiosity and a love for learning, where boys and girls work harmoniously, placing emphasis on the process just as much as the final outcome. Staff and children believe in a ‘Growth Mindset’, allowing the children to rise to challenges without fear of making mistakes.

Outside the classroom, Belmont’s verdant grounds provide the perfect setting for the children to relax, play and build long-lasting friendships. The vast space and outstanding facilities also help the children to develop skills such as leadership, resilience and teamwork, whether this be through the school’s all-inclusive Games programme, or taking part in much-loved Forest School lessons.

Belmont prides itself on offering an extensive Co-curricular Programme that reinforces our values in a wide variety of activities. These activities allow the children to find what it is they really enjoy, and their involvement and commitment sees their confidence develop and spill into other aspects of school life.

We believe Belmont is truly a wonderful place to prepare boys and girls for the next step of their education. A place where at the heart of everything your child learns to ‘Be Kind, Try their Best and Embrace Challenge.’
