Lower Prep

Our Lower Prep team are dedicated to providing the highest quality care and education for all our children, thereby giving them a strong foundation for their future learning. Pupils in the Lower Prep are able to have enriched and purposeful learning experiences through our broad and creative curriculum, which is taught predominately by their Class Teacher.

Our strong academic programme includes Maths, English, Science, History, Geography, Religious Education, PSHE, Art Design & Technology, and Computing. In addition, Music, Swimming, French, PE and Games are taught by specialist teachers, supplemented by a wide range of extra-curricular activities, to broaden their experiences further.

Regular visits to Forest School in the Lower Prep, also provides endless opportunities for hands-on experiences and the chance to develop problem-solving skills and teamwork.

Upper Prep

In Years 4, 5 & 6 pupils begin to get a taste of Senior School life as they follow a full timetable of subject-specialist teaching, supported by their Class Tutor.

They enjoy a broad and rich curriculum. Our strong academic programme includes Maths, English, Science, History, Geography, Religious Education, Drama, Art, Music, Engineering Design, ICT, Reasoning, PSHE, PE, Games and Swimming, as well as many other extra-curricular activities.

In Year 6 pupils are introduced to a second language, as they study Spanish alongside French.
