Prep School pupils are given the appropriate blend of challenge, support and inspiration to start to forge their own path. They rise to the high expectations that are set and are proud of their achievements. A wealth of extra-curricular opportunities including Music, Sport, Languages, Drama, Dance and Gardening make for an action-packed day.
Educational visits are an integral part of the teaching programme and are arranged to galleries and museums to support the classroom learning. These are linked to the topic or area of study at the time. Outside visitors lead workshops for individual year groups or the whole school as appropriate.
Years 5 and 6 both enjoy weeks away with their peers. For Year 5 their adventure has in recent years taken them to the Grafham Water Centre, in Cambridgeshire during the early part of the Autumn term. Their time away focuses on team building and working collaboratively. Year 6 spend a week during the Summer term in Normandy, with ample opportunity to extend and use their French. Both trips give the girls greater confidence and add much to their development as individuals.
