Academic

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.  Willing is not enough; we must do.

You will want the best education for your son; you will want him to reach his  potential; you may have an idea of the senior school you would like him to move on to. 

We understand these are important factors in your choice of prep school for your son.   We will make sure your son is given the best education, reaches his potential and has the best possible preparation for the senior school of your choice.

Curriculum

We provide a traditional subject-based curriculum.  The examined academic subjects are English, Maths, Science, French, Geography, History, Religious Studies and Latin; your son may also study Mandarin, German and Ancient Greek if he wishes.

Art, Music, Design Technology, Physical Education, IT and PHSE complete the formal curriculum.  We make sure that your son's knowledge in these subjects is extended   by trips, visits and lectures.  We run additional clubs and activities such as coding, debating, drama and chess.  Your son's imagination and potential will be stretched!

Orders

Some schools call it a report; we call it orders.

Every three weeks we publish Form Orders, which gives each boy his mark, position and effort grade by subject. Your son will sit exams twice a year, and you will receive termly progress reports.
