Life in the Prep

The value of strong pastoral connections is at the heart of our Prep School and every child knows that they have a form teacher who is always on hand to provide guidance and support.

The Form Teacher’s role is a crucial one as the form teacher will be there to help each child to start their day in the right way. They will see one another throughout each day and then come back together as a class before either heading home or to a club. In Year 5 the children are often split into 3 forms and this continues in to Year 6 when the children experience their final year at the Prep School and all of the privileges and responsibilities that go with being the most senior pupils. Every one of our senior pupils has the chance to become a Prefect for half a term and to get a sense as to what such a position entails, taking on duties but also enjoying the much-loved privileges.

Our small classes and subject specialist teachers provide an environment in which every child is given the support that they need to flourish and to become the best learner that they can be. Within all subject areas are opportunities for children to develop core skills which will not only promote their academic development but will also prepare them for a lifetime of learning. At the heart of that is the determination to help each individual to better understand how they can realise their full potential.

The curriculum for all includes English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Religious and Philosophical Studies, French, Art, Design Technology, Food Technology, Computing, Drama, Music, PE and Games. As well as the core curriculum we also believe in the value of a rich co-curricular programme and each term there are a wide range of theme days, trips and visits to engage the children and extend their learning. Recent experiences have included weeks dedicated to the Creative Arts and STEM programmes, but the highlight for most of our children will always be the residential trips during the Summer Term.
