The Pre-Prep School

Curriculum Overview

The Pre-Prep School offers a broad, balanced, relevant curriculum which includes coverage of the seven areas of Learning and Development in the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum Programmes of Study at Key Stage One.


It is suited to all pupils across the full age and ability range and contributes effectively to children’s intellectual, physical and personal attainment and development, thereby preparing them well for the next stage of their education.

We operate a three year rolling programme for the long-term curriculum plans and detailed medium term plans and schemes of work ensure continuity and progression in learning. Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) play a significant part in the personal development of pupils at the Pre-Prep School and teachers develop an open, caring relationship with their pupils.

High expectations of behaviour towards one another are promoted and pupils have a real sense of belonging to a community. Assemblies are broadly Christian in nature and develop a sense of ‘togetherness’ and they are a key area in promoting self esteem, morality and spirituality.

Every child matters in the Pre-Prep School. We strive to ensure they are happy and safe, that they understand right from wrong, are confident within themselves and with others, have pride in their achievements and those of others, trust in their peers and their teachers and know that their voice is heard.
