Creating engaged learners

Prep School teaching & learning

Looking back on our own education it is often the teachers that made it very special. Part of our teaching and learning approach is to aim to employ the most enthusiastic and passionate teachers who are able to install in our girls and boys a genuine love of learning and a real sense that nothing is beyond them.

We aim to provide our girls and boys with an education that is rich and varied and allows them to become independent and engaged learners who are happy to take on difficult challenges and to learn from their mistakes. Our Prep school teaching & learning approach places a strong emphasis on both academic achievement, but also developing those vital skills that enable them to use their knowledge to solve problems they might not have come across.

Our curriculum meets both the national curriculum and the independent schools examination requirements, while at the same time allowing curriculum time for Spanish and French, the Creative Arts, Outdoor Education as well as a comprehensive Physical Education programme. Our smaller class sizes allow us to personalise children’s learning so that within individual subjects we are able to appeal to their interests and individual needs.
