New dates for our 2017 ‘School in Action Morning’ for Preps and Pre-Preps (Nursery to Year 2) will be available shortly.
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.
In Prep II there is a strong emphasis on reading and developing a love of books and stories. Children benefit from regular one to one reading practice following a clear and structured reading program and listen to wide range of stories from modern and traditional authors.
