Junior School

The philosophy for learning that permeates Wardle House values children as active participants in their own education and develops capable learners who understand where they are at in their learning and set goals for 'where to next'. We foster active, reflective listeners who respond effectively and earn the respect of others through their actions.

Wardle House, our Junior School, is a nurturing, safe environment where each student is encouraged to excel through structured, student-centred programs that encourage each student to be the best they can be. We strongly believe that our ultimate advantage is the individual care and attention we give our students.


Small classes that maximise each student's intellectual, emotional and social development in a supportive, enriching environment is what sets us apart. Students engage in experiences where they are encouraged to be curious and ask questions as well as explore and interact with their environment physically, socially and intellectually.

Our dynamic educational model, inspired by the principles and practices of Reggio Emilia and delivered through the structure of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, ignites a passion for lifelong learning. Our ‘Leading self and others’ approach provides opportunities for students to act in roles of responsibility with integrity and honesty; work with others to determine and achieve collective goals and take on responsibilities to use decision making skills in order to carry a project through to a successful conclusion.

As we seek to foster the individuality of each student, a major focus in Wardle House is on educational growth through the key learning areas of Literacy and Numeracy. Our passionate teachers create learning opportunities throughout Wardle House by making use of innovative spaces, next practice research and resources to excite and inspire young learners.

We are proud of the warm, supportive and inclusive environment Wardle House provides our girls and boys, which allows them to explore, investigate and play both indoors and outdoors. We welcome and encourage engagement from parents and grandparents in the Wardle House community as part of the journey and exploration of each child as they develop into strong, capable and resilient global citizens.
