Our main purpose has always been to prepare pupils thoroughly for their Senior Schools, but not to over coach or have Common Entrance or Scholarships as an end in themselves. Prep School is a part of a child's education and the most important thing is that the foundations are laid for individuals to maximise their potential throughout their lives. We offer as broad an education as possible as well as constantly reviewing our curriculum and the way we deliver it to ensure we provide a wide range of learning opportunities.
Flexibility – we deal effectively with a mixed-ability entry and encourage each child to reach his/her highest potential;
Breadth – we offer the widest possible range of opportunities for each child to reveal talents and to excel in at least one area;
Structure – on the onehand we give a sense of security and progress, while on the other we provide a norm against which the needs of the individual can be judged;
Rigour – each child is monitored using two Work Reports during the term, discussed individually with his/her Form Tutor and seen by the Headmaster, as well as an end-of-term report. In addition parents have the opportunity to discuss their child's progress with individual staff at Parents' Meetings.
