Where core values of Commitment, Opportunity, Respect and Excellence are embraced.
Our Preparatory School, located just a short walk from our Senior School site, builds on the foundations established during Key Stage 1.
We aim to provide a first-class education within a wonderfully dynamic and inspiring environment. We place an equal value on core, creative and technological subjects to provide a progressive curriculum, continually evolving to answer to the needs of modern society and encourage the development of crucial life skills including curiosity and self-motivation.
Our curriculum incorporates the following subjects:
- English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Design Technology, Art, Music, French, Spanish, Computing, PE, RE, Drama
- Timetabled orchestra lessons for pupils in Years 5 and 6
- Computing across the curriculum
Your child’s happiness and needs are our priority and we believe the well-being of our pupils is central to their learning. We have created a caring environment, which embraces core values such as respect and excellence, fostering community through a philosophy of care. Leadership, loyalty and teamwork are fostered through our assemblies, form, and house system, and pupils are helped to understand how their actions have an impact on others.
Our co-curricular activities programme provides children with a wealth of opportunities to pursue their interests or try something new. We aim to help children increase their confidence and self-belief while cultivating new abilities which may develop into lifelong skills and interests and which encourage them to take on new challenges. The range of co-curricular activities is extensive, which complements lessons and gives further opportunities to hone their skills in many areas.
