Prep (Ages 4-7)

The Prep Department offers a warm, caring and nurturing environment in which each child feels secure, valued, stimulated and above all, happy. 

Our broad and engaging curriculum ensures that pupils develop an early love of learning and are well prepared for their journey through the rest of the school.     

A variety of teaching methods are applied to suit pupils of all abilities and key skills are developed through carefully planned activities.   

From Reception onwards, children are organised into two classes which work closely together to plan and deliver the curriculum throughout their time in Prep.  

The ratio of adults to children is very favourable enabling a high degree of individual attention.  Our experienced teaching staff and well-qualified teaching assistants ensure that children are supported or challenged when needed.
