There is a seamless transition from Pre-School to Reception, with familiar processes maintained from Nursery into Prep-School.
This includes being welcomed by the Head at the front door each morning, the Reception classroom and bathrooms being adjacent to Pre-School, and the continuation of lessons by our specialist Music, Modern Foreign Language and PE teachers.
Our Early Years Coordinator works alongside the Reception teachers and the Pre-School staff to ensure continuity and progression of every child’s learning.
External children and their families are invited to our Transition sessions alongside those moving from Pre-School, with visits from the Reception staff to the Pre-School and by the Pre-School children to the Reception classrooms.
In addition, we hold parent meetings to introduce the transition process, share Prep-School induction information and answer any questions. Our Prep School Parent Handbook, which covers an A-Z of what to expect in Prep School, is also provided.
