The Prep Day
A timetable filled with engaging classes provides the day’s structural foundation, while a vibrant and enriching array of activities creates a lively and stimulating evironment ensuring each day is both diverse and fun for the children.
It’s the big game of hide and seek on a summer’s evening, a visit to the Headmaster when you’ve achieved something to be proud of, the all-in game of Court cricket at break time. It is cooking a favourite meal in the great outdoors, getting your hands dirty in the woods, the chance for every Year 8 pupil to take responsibility and feel recognised. We like to go that little bit further to make every day memorable.
Last academic year, we restructured the format of the School day, ensuring the child is at the heart of our educational approach to allow families to better balance home and school life. Children now have the choice to leave school at the end of lessons or to immerse themselves in one or two of our diverse and expanded After School Clubs. Additionally, they have the option to undertake their preparatory work (prep) either at home or within the school environment.
We pride ourselves on offering a broad spectrum of After School Clubs and activities, ensuring each child finds an area where they can shine and explore their interests. Beyond our customary academic, sports, and arts offerings, we now also provide opportunities in gardening, water polo, orienteering, cookery, mountain biking, climbing, and robotics, among others.
By nurturing confidence within each child and their abilities, we encourage active participation in all aspects of school life hoping to enrich every child’s educational experience and personal development.
