The Pre-Prep Curriculum

The learning muscle can be fuelled, trained and subsequently strengthened.

In the Pre-Prep, Years 1 and 2, the curriculum builds on the excellent foundations laid in the Early Years section. The characteristics of effective learning continue to form an integral part of each boy’s academic development and underpin every aspect of it. Specialist teaching is extended beyond Music and Physical Education to include Drama, French and Computing.  Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is also introduced as a discrete specialist lesson each week.  

The core subjects are taught by class teachers with an assisting adult in a programmed and tailored manner, geared towards all abilities and learning styles. Topic-based teaching is introduced at this age in order to help provide real-life context to learning for each boy. Our exciting topics motivate, challenge and inspire and are designed to specifically engage boys, with the way in which they learn at the heart of all endeavour.
