Our next Whole School Open Day is on Saturday 10th March 2018. Register now to attend.
We hold ‘School in Action’ mornings for Nursery and Preps (Reception-Year 2) where parents are able to learn about our Outstanding (ISI rated) EYFS department. The Headteacher, Mrs Raffray greets and welcomes parents to this special event and the Head of Preps and Pre-Preps, Miss Keane, gives a short presentation about our Nursery and Preps I, II and III. Guided tours of the school and grounds are conducted following the presentation and you will have the opportunity to speak to the Registrar and Admissions Team following the tours.
Please see our Nursery Booklet_2017-2018 for information on getting started.
The Pre-Preps follow the EYFS Curriculum with its seven areas of Learning and Development – three prime areas – Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, and four specific areas – Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design.
In Pre-Preps outdoor and physical education is embedded in our daily activity. The outdoor environment provides a rich, natural space for learning and developing young minds. Our Forest School and Physical Education sessions are part of our learning resources. In P.E sessions we encourage children to explore a variety of movements whilst our Forest School sessions allow children to explore their natural surroundings using their senses.
Our focus throughout the year is building relationships, growing in independence and becoming independent learners. In Pre-Preps we lay the foundations for the transition onto Prep I in a fun, safe and exciting learning environment.
Morning, afternoon or full day sessions are available. For those children who stay for a full day, school lunches are prepared and freshly cooked on the premises and offer a range of meals including a vegetarian option, salads, sandwiches, as well as desserts and fresh fruit. Lunch is eaten in the Nursery under close supervision from staff. In addition there is a Breakfast Club serving breakfast from 8 am and an Ofsted registered After-School Club offering extended care for children until 6 pm.
