Welcome to Preparatory (Years 3 - 6)
In the Preparatory School, pupils follow a broad curriculum, covering English, Mathematics, Science, Languages (French,Spanish), History, Geography, Religious Studies, Design Technology, Information Technology, Music, Art, Physical Education and Games.
The syllabus is designed to follow the National Curriculum. Pupils continue French and Spanish in Years 3 to 6 and Music, Art, DT and ICT are provided for within the school timetable, as well as being available as co-curricular clubs.
We have an excellent examination record for our pupils entry to senior school for 11+ and, in recent years, pupils have been successful at:
Box Hill School; Caterham School; Epsom College; Ewell Castle School; Reed's School; Reigate Grammar School; Royal Russell School; St. John's School Leatherhead; Trinity School; Woldingham; Whitgift School.
Ardingly College; Bradfield College; Charterhouse School; Cranleigh School; Eastbourne College; Eton College; Hurstpierpiont College; Lancing College; Mill Hill School; Seaford College; Tonbridge School; Winchester College.
We have gained a high number of Scholarships - Academic, Art, Music and Sport - every year.
Each child's progress throughout the School is carefully monitored, and much individual attention is paid both to academic and social development. There are twice-yearly exams, and pupils are encouraged to achieve their best by a system of House points and Merits. We keep parents in touch with their child's progress with termly reports and half-termly 'Interim reports'; and Parents' Evenings are held twice a year. Parents are welcome to discuss any matters of concern with Form and Subject teachers, and much informal contact is maintained through our 'open door' policy.
It is our aim that each pupil should achieve the best of which s/he is capable. Small classes ensure that every pupil receives individual attention throughout these formative years. A wide range of extra-curricular activities and sports helps to nurture skills and talents outside the classroom.
