Curriculum

In the Pre-Prep we provide our pupils with a varied and interesting learning environment, and offer a carefully balanced curriculum. Areas of learning focus on:

  • Literacy/Phonics
  • Numeracy
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication & Language
  • Physical Development
  • Understanding the World

There are specialist areas to enable creative learning and an outside classroom giving plenty of scope for all-weather outside learning and play. We have specialist teaching for PE, Music, Computing and French.
