Prep to Year 6 Brighton Junior Campus
The Firbank Learning Journey continues at our Brighton Junior Campus.
“Welcome to Firbank Brighton Junior Campus, or as it is otherwise known, Turner House. Visitors to Turner House regularly comment on the delightful learning environment, polite students, friendly, professional staff and the caring nature of our School. Home to 300 girls from ELC 3 to Year 6, our vision is to be a school where all students find their place, now and for the future.” Mel Smith, Head of Campus.
We have four key beliefs at Brighton Junior Campus:
- Every student is important
- Every lesson is critical
- Every encounter is valued
- Every opportunity should be taken
These beliefs together with the extensive Teaching and Learning program develop the natural curiosity and thinking skills of the students in a caring and inclusive environment. Specialist teachers, high academic standards and a diverse range of curricular activities help our students build confidence, resilience and a love of learning.
Through their educational journey at our all-girls school, our students are encouraged to develop their individual talents. We pride ourselves on being a family school with Christian values, where parents are encouraged to be involved in School life. Our aim is to enable all students to contribute and to develop a sense of responsibility in their relationships with others. We believe it is important to promote tolerance and understanding of individual differences, other cultures and the diversity of views in the world.
The learning and personal development programs we offer help our students cultivate essential skills for the contemporary world, including social skills, oral communication, problem-solving, teamwork and creativity.
