Children aged 7-11 have a class teacher who takes the majority of the core subjects with specialist teachers for Science, Spanish, Religious Education and Physical Education.
We encourage a problem-solving approach and aim to teach children how they learn and encourage them to develop strategies for thinking that really work for them, therefore developing their intellectual character.
The academic work inevitably becomes more demanding as the children progress to the final preparations for Scholarship and Entrance examinations to secondary school. This is a gradual process for which the children are well prepared in the studious atmosphere of their own Prep building. Children use the facilities of a library and ICT room to carry out any research they need to do.
Our commitment, following our close partnership with parents, is to prepare children for the challenges they will face in their secondary education.
