The Pre-prep department

Year 1 and Year 2 (aged five-seven years)

As the children progress to year 1 and year 2 their literacy and numeracy skills are consolidated. Their curriculum includes the core curriculum subjects English, mathematics and science as well as art, design and technology, information and communication technology (ICT), religious education, music, drama, personal social and health education, history, geography, physical education and a wide range of creative activities. Spanish is specialist-taught from nursery to year 2.

All pupils have reading books to share at home. Year 1 children take home spelling activities and an interactive maths game, and Year 2 children take home mathematics and literacy activities.

Each child deserves the very best at the start of their education and the staff ensure experiences are stimulating, enjoyable and appropriate to each child's needs; thus building confidence, competence and self-esteem among all learners.
