Whole Child Approach
We are an academic school with high aspirations for children and we believe in developing the whole child through a broad, balanced curriculum including outdoor learning, physical education and the arts. Children who do more, achieve more, and we aim to stretch and challenge all of the children in our care.
Learning in the Pre Prep is enhanced through cross-curricular learning. We provide rich and varied contexts for pupils to acquire, develop and apply a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skills. We also believe that our pupils should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development. This is achieved through planned activities outdoors and through enhancing the curriculum with external visits, workshops, visitors and themed days. All pupils are provided with opportunities to participate in activities outside the classroom through our outdoor curriculum. Our learning environment embraces traditional family values. It is one in which all the children are fully supported and guided in order that they may develop self-confidence, a love of learning, good manners, respect for self and others, empathy and kindness.
When it is time for children to move on to the Junior School, the transition is planned seamlessly to ensure that children’s needs are known and that they continue to be met in the best way possible.
We look forward to meeting you and showing you around the Pre Prep.
