Learning at the Prep School

At the Prep School, we believe that learning should be the ultimate adventure offer an exciting and broad curriculum which goes well beyond the National Curriculum.

With our school strapline of ‘Inspiring Minds’ at the heart of all we do, we place significant importance on developing each child as a skilful and positive learner.

Through the PSB (Pre Senior Baccalaureate) framework, we understand that every child is an individual and we encourage the children to take control of their own learning from the moment they join the School. Children at the Prep School embrace their learning with enthusiasm and confidence.

Through the PSB core skills: Thinking & Learning, Reviewing & Improving, Independence, Collaboration, Leadership and Communicating our aim is develop each child as a skilled and positive learner – allowing them opportunities to be challenged; grow in confidence and develop their love of learning.

"At the end of his or her time at the Prep School, your child will have a love of learning and know that learning is fun."

Lessons are planned to ensure there is a tailored level of challenge, valuing each child’s strengths and areas for development. Units of work are designed to hook the children’s interests and active questioning allows them to fully immerse themselves and inspire their learning.

Our ever-evolving curriculum stretches beyond the classroom and is designed to fully immerse children in their learning through sport, creative performing arts, music and OAKS with the use of integrated technology, special subject and cross-curricular days, trips and visits; competitions, in addition to our extensive co-curricular programme.

These opportunities optimise their potential through enhancing their learning and ensuring there is greater breadth and depth in their understanding.
