Prep School – Curriculum Overview

Life does not consist of separate compartments of experiences. Everything has a cause, effect and implications for the wider world. Our Topic Curriculum reflects this. For example the science of investigating whether our climate is changing also has geographical, historical and environmental implications. It inspires debate and awareness of current affairs. Children understand the principles of all subjects but develop awareness that there are a multitude of connections with everything we learn.

The core subjects of literacy and numeracy are taught each morning.  PE and music are taught by specialist teachers. We foster a sense of being one whole school by utilising the strengths, expertise and skills of teachers from our Senior department whenever possible. We utilise all relevant teaching areas within our school such as our sports hall, 3G pitch and drama studio. These initiatives help to ensure a smooth transition for our pupils from Key Stage 2 to 3.

We have curriculum enrichment weeks in the summer term when we focus on a wide variety of cross curricular topics such as the Olympics, local history or VE Day.

We are always striving to develop our curriculum to ensure that it continues to inspire our children and to fulfil the aims of our school.

 

Our highly experienced teaching team is committed to bringing hidden talent and undiscovered potential out into the light.
