Pupils in the Prep Department develop increasing confidence and independence. They are encouraged and supported to take full advantage of the wide range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities on offer.

The Prep School, for children in Years 3 to 8, builds upon the foundations laid in the Pre Prep. Preparation for Common Entrance begins in Year 3 when a wider range of subjects is introduced. Children gradually move from class teaching to subject specialist teaching and ensures sound preparation for a number of the country’s leading senior schools. Latin is introduced from Year 6 onwards and appropriate provision is available for pupils with additional needs. The extensive range of extra-curricular activities on offer ensures that every child is able to pursue their interests and develop their talents, both in and out of the classroom. The class teacher maintains close contact throughout and closely monitors all aspects of pupil progress and wellbeing.
