Our School Day

The Preparatory School opens at 8am, allowing pupils to come into the hall where they are supervised by a member of staff in our Morning Club.  Classes start at 8.30am. The class teachers are responsible for the pastoral care of the children and they teach:

  • English
  • Science, Technology and Maths (STeM)
  • Religious Education (RE)
  • Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
  • Humanities (History and Geography)
  • Computing (up to Yr 2)

Specialist teachers teach all year groups:

  • Music
  • Physical Education (PE)

From Year 2 onwards pupils are taught the following subjects by specialist teachers in a phased progression:

  • Computing
  • French, German, Spanish
  • Drama
  • Art and Design
  • Technology

In addition, we have a Raising Attainment Teacher who works with children who need further development to reach their individualised Academic Ambition. Academic excellence is supported by our Senior and Middle Leadership Teams.

The Preparatory School Timetable

The Preparatory and Senior School timetables are aligned to enable specialist teaching to be delivered.

  

As a guide, pupils have 30 lessons a week of 50 minutes per lesson. Lesson 6 is only 35 or 40 minutes and the younger children have a break time in the afternoon.

Twilight Club

Twilight Club runs after school every day until 6pm.

Co-curricular Programme

Our extensive co-curricular programme runs before school, lunchtime and after school. You can view the whole school co-curricular booklet here.
