Pre-Prep (Years 1 - 2)

In the Pre-Prep Department the class teacher takes all core curriculum subjects and speciaist teachers take Spanish and Physical Education lessons.

English and Maths have a central place in the timetable and children also study:

  • History
  • Geography
  • Religious Education
  • Science
  • Art
  • ICT
  • Character Development
  • Drama

We encourage a problem-solving approach and a keen awareness of the natural world. The children go on many trips and benefit from outside speakers and visitors. Information Technology is integrated into all subjects. Small class sizes mean we can offer an individualised teaching programme with differentiated activities. Each child continues at their own pace, the more able can be challenged and additional support provided when needed to ensure learning progresses.

Children can move happily and confidently onto the Prep Department as they will have been thoroughly prepared by their Pre Prep experience at Oliver House.
