Prep School comprises Infants (Reception to Year 2) and Juniors (Year 3 to Year 6).
We build strong academic foundations combined with an extensive co-curricular programme to support character development, guided by the sector-leading Round Square educational framework, rooted in the philosophy of Kurt Hahn.
A love of investigative science is nurtured, and coding is taught during specialist Computing lessons. Similarly, the humanities are taught creatively and is explored in greater depth through alignment across the curriculum, including creative writing, field trips and art.
We pay great attention to the Creative Arts, with Drama, Art and Music taught by specialist teachers. There is a strong culture of performance across the school, from assemblies to music concerts and plays each term. In addition, French, Spanish and German are also taught by specialist teachers.
Sport is central to our commitment to the physical and mental wellbeing of the children in our care. We are outstanding in hockey and enjoy success in the disciplines of rugby, football, netball, athletics, cricket, rounders and tennis.
Character education is central to our commitment to the emotional, personal and social development of our students. Through the Round Square Discovery Framework, we inspire our students to develop their skills of self-awareness and personal responsibility, teamwork and resilience, both at school and more intensively on annual residential trips which take place from Year 3.
We encourage the children to be leaders and embrace all they do in the school community with compassion and integrity. Our co-curricular programme is vast, offering over 45 clubs focusing on sport, creative pursuits and academic clubs each week.
