The Prep School is home to lively and inquiring minds. It spans Years 3-8 (ages 7 to 13), boys and girls are taught in small class sizes of an average of 16.
We provide children with a personalised learning programme which ensures every child reaches their full potential. Class teachers track pupil progress diligently, setting clear targets for improvement and progression. Many children achieve well above national age-related expectations at the end of the Prep School.
Our children benefit from the teaching of specialist teachers teaching additional subjects such as Art, Music, Drama, French, Spanish and PE thus enabling a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum to be delivered.
The Prep school make the most of the rich learning resources that Cambridge and its surrounding area has to offer including the Botanical Gardens, museums, art galleries. Our full year round sporting programme takes advantage of the cities sporting facilities and grounds.
A competition for attainment and effort is arranged under the House system: Dragons, Griffins and Phoenix. There is friendly rivalry between the Houses in the form of Art and Drama competitions, sports matches and charity fund-raising. Children are also encouraged to perform in a variety of shows and concerts throughout the year as well as during their termly class assemblies where the children’s personal, social, and health education is explored through a wide spectrum of subjects.
In Years 5 and 6 residential trips promote independence, team work and personal responsibility. All of these opportunities help to prepare children for their senior schooling and beyond, by educating them to make the right choices throughout their life.
