Prep (Age 7–11)

Children in class

When children join the Prep Department they benefit from a form tutor for pastoral care together with specialist teaching in all subjects. English and Mathematics are taught by the same teacher over 2 school years (3-4 and 5-6) which provides excellent continuity.

As the children progress through the school they are increasingly taught by subject specialists in all areas, but pastoral welfare remains under the guidance of the form tutor.
