MapleWalk Faraday

The New Model School runs two independent primary schools in London on a not-for-profit basis. NMS is committed to giving every child a first-class traditional education in the arts and sciences, drawing as a resource upon the Core Knowledge approach which imparts knowledge through traditional academic subjects. Using the Core Knowledge approach as a base both schools aim to achieve excellence in the teaching of core subjects - in particular English and maths plus excellence in all other subjects such as science, language, history and geography. All NMS children also enjoy drama, art, music and sport as part of a rich and varied curriculum.
