In the Pre-Prep we aim to make the early years of school an exciting and stimulating experience for our children.
With a seamless transition from our Courtyard Cubs, our classes are small with excellent adult to child ratios, ensuring each child receives the best possible support and encouragement. We use a topic based approach and plan activities by observing – watching interests and abilities grow, in order to provide purposeful and tailor-made learning.
Our pupils benefit from energetic and specialist teaching for Music, PE and French. Pre-Prep pupils also have weekly swimming lessons at the local pool and the option of after-school tennis lessons. While the children are regularly stepping outside their comfort zone, they feel safe to explore and try something new in our supportive and reassuring environment. Therefore, many of our pupils choose to stay for after-school clubs, which run every evening until 4:45pm, so that they make the most of every opportunity that comes their way. Club options change every term and have included cooking, construction, maths games and traditional playground games.
We are proud of our warm family atmosphere and provide opportunities to promote this within our community. All pupils share books with older children from Years 5 and 6 in our popular Reading Partner Scheme and Nursery children have Year 3 ‘buddies’ to support them during their Forest School sessions.
We recognise the great benefits of outdoor learning and its potential to provide wider experiences and opportunities for children. Each class has a dedicated Forest School session every week. We are lucky to have an area of the beautiful Longleat Estate woodland as our Forest School.
