The Opportunities Widen
We value effort and encourage persistence as Prep children enjoy a wider range of activities both in and out of the classroom
We aim for academic excellence and strive to ensure that everyone, irrespective of ability, reaches their full potential. Pupils take part in a varied programme of events inducing study skills and Mind Mapping workshops. These activities help them to identify their own learning styles and also empower them to become self-directed learners.
“I am very happy and I don’t think we could have chosen better.”
Years 3 & 4 are taught science French, ICT, DT, Music, Art, Sport and Performing Arts but specialist subjects. From year 5 every subject is taught as a specialism with the introduction of setting for Maths and English where appropriate.
Pupils are prepared for the next stage of their educational journey and advice given to parents on the ‘next steps’. Many achieve scholarships and awards to top rate secondary schools and all gain entry to their first choice school.
There are regular educational trips which enhance the curriculum and provide a positive and enjoyable experience. Day trips for all and residential trips are introduced from Year 3 which the children thoroughly enjoy.
In addition to the excellent sports facilities, first class teaching and learning include a fully equipped science laboratory, ICT suite with roaming laptops and iPads, Learning Resource Centre where paper and electronic media combine, cookery facilities and a well-resourced studio for Art and Design.
