Prep School

Pupils entering Year 3 follow an increasingly broad curriculum as they are taught by subject specialists for Art, Music, Drama, ICT, Games, PE, PSHE and French with the support and security of a form teacher.

The form teacher plays a vital role in supporting a child in his or her form and is the first point of contact for parents.  

Parents meet with the form teacher at Parent Evenings and have an in-depth discussion regarding their child. Additional meetings can be arranged, outside this time, and regular contact is maintained through email, the homework diary and reading journal.

Children in the Prep School largely follow the National Curriculum but have extension activities and broader extra-curricular provision wherever possible.

Pupils in Years 4 and 5 have a lesson of Mandarin each week taught by a specialist teacher.

Pupils in Years 5 and 6 work with specialist teachers and are streamed by ability/pace in preparation for their senior school entrance exams.
