The children are taught by well-qualified staff, who care for them as individuals and aim to meet their needs, so they can develop their full potential. Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of the basic skills of numeracy and literacy in the context of a broad curriculum which encourages creativity and personal development. There are extensive opportunities for practical learning experiences. The children are taught on the whole by their subject teacher, but there is some specialist teaching in Music, French, ICT, PE and Swimming.
There are two parallel classes in each year group, throughout the Prep School, and girls and boys benefit from being in small classes. Contact with parents is actively sought, so an effective partnership between home and the school is established. Parents receive written reports and Parents’ Evenings are held at various times during the academic year.
