Within the Classroom: Prep School


There are twice as many English and Maths lessons as a standard prep school would for all our juniors, coupled with having two teachers in each class for these key subjects.

Historically it is so often these core skills that have hindered boys from both comprehending the work being studied and showing their potential.

On top of the core English and Maths, boys are taught the following subjects to give breadth and variety to their curriculum.

  • Science

  • Geography

  • History

  • Religious Studies

  • French


  • Music

  • Design and Technology

  • Art

The curriculum is balanced and broadly based, and strongly promotes the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils. It prepares our pupils well for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in British Society, including the provision for their economic well-being. It enables pupils to acquire skills in speaking, reading, writing, listening and numeracy.

There are many additional positions of responsibility that the boys can work towards, Prefects, Formal Dinner Servers, Eco committee member… to name a few. In addition to the classroom curriculum, activities always prove popular with day boys and boarders.
