As an independent school, we are able to refine the curriculum to suit our ethos whilst preparing the children for a variety of academic challenges. Many of our children sit the 11+ and take entrance and scholarship exams to local senior
independent schools. Our passionate teachers, subject specialists and small class sizes ensure our pupils work at pace, making progress whilst taking increasing responsibility for their work and effort.
Pupils in the Prep School have their science, computing, art and design technology and music lessons in specialist, well equipped classrooms. Spanish is taught in Years 3-5 and in Year 6 time is spent on French, German and Spanish. Once a week, the whole Prep School goes ‘off timetable’ and takes part in a variety of activities, ranging from cooking and gardening to swimming and philosophy. The learning experiences are enriched as the children are challenged in different ways, whilst having a lot of fun. Children join one of four Houses and take part in a variety of inter-house competitions as well as earning stars for work and House tokens for helpfulness and using their initiative.
