The Pre-Prep department is a place where inquisitive three and four year olds spend their days imagining, building and discovering. The Owls and Robins classrooms are always abuzz with the sound of children learning through play; be it counting the dots on finger-painted ladybird, practising letter shapes with spaghetti or helping a friend to be their best self.
Just like growing children, the department constantly changes and adapts to suit the challenges each day will bring. Role play areas are frequently updated to allow your child to be a Doctor, Dentist, Zoologist, Artist and Journalist; and that’s just the first week! Whatever the days and weeks may bring, Owls and Robins pupils are blissfully unaware of how their questioning teachers are helping them to learn and grow.
A child's Reception year is a time of discovery and development. Lessons are still a fun and engaging experience that take full advantage of the indoor, outdoor and technological facilities on offer and progress is rapid. The foundation for learning provided in Owls and Robins allows our pupils to delve into the challenge of Reception without delay and, by the end of the year, pupils are eager to move upstairs to the Year 1 classroom and join the Lower School.
"The outcomes in the EYFS are excellent. The children make rapid progress relative to their individual starting points. They are extremely active learners and are creative and critical in their thinking." - ISI Inspection Report March 2016
