Nursery & Prep Classes
In the Nursery and Prep classes the children learn to work and play together, providing them with a solid foundation in social skills. It is here that we try to instil in the children our core values:
- The pursuit of excellence.
- Care and respect for all people.
- Self expression and individuality.
- Rewards for honesty, diligence and effort.
- Encouraging self confidence and self discipline.
Prep and Transition Classes
In the Prep and Transition classes the children learn the basics of number and letter recognition, soon progressing to more formal reading, writing and number work.
Every child is encouraged to participate in group activities as preparation for more formal lessons.
The teaching for years 1 and 2 incorporates all of the National Curriculum subjects, and additionally offers French, Spanish, Music, Drama and Computing taught as separate subjects.
In these two classes pupils are taught by specialist teachers for some subjects.
