Our Pre-Prep comprises girls in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. A dedicated team of teachers and teaching assistants work to ensure our girls are happy, motivated and confident, ready for their transition into Prep School. We strive to create a supportive, nurturing environment where children can flourish, enabling them to achieve their individual potential.
We have adopted a Creative Curriculum, where learning is based around half-termly topics linked to as many subjects as possible. This themed approach keeps learning fun and gives us greater flexibility.
Wherever possible the girls learn practically and in a ‘hands on’ manner, learning is supplemented with in-house events, parent speakers and school trips.
A timetabled, weekly PSHCE lesson enables us to deliver ‘Jigsaw’, our whole school, consistent approach to Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship (PSHCE) education. It brings these strands together alongside the development of emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning.
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development opportunities are mapped throughout, including British Values. All of the puzzle pieces of learning are brought together to form a cohesive picture, helping children to understand and value who they are, and make sense of how they relate to other people in the world.
