A Port Regis EducationSUB MENU
Our aim is to ensure a Port Regis education is the sort of education that every parent wishes for their child. We set the bar high and life in the classroom aims to discover and nurture potential, regardless of ability. We also encourage independent learning and thinking and want every child to look forward to and enjoy their lessons.
Our academic curriculum covers all the following subjects:
- Religious Studies
- Modern Foreign Languages (French or Spanish)
- Classics (Latin and Greek)
Pupils pursue these subjects to Common Entrance or Scholarship level in setted groups. The Headmaster and other senior members of staff will advise parents on how to choose an appropriate senior school for their child and a great deal of time and effort is spent making sure that the right choice is made.
The school encourages and expects high standards of teaching and educational practice. The three main qualities demanded of teaching staff are exceptional subject knowledge, strong classroom management and the ability to inspire the children in the classroom and beyond. We are fortunate to attract the best teachers from all over the country, a number of whom have held positions at prestigious senior schools before working at Port Regis and no fewer than twelve members of our academic staff hold Oxbridge qualifications.

There he soon became Head of English and Head of History, combining the Deputy Headship with these roles for the final eight years.
