Prep (Age 7-11)
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 two 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.
Children work towards Senior School Entrance Examinations at the age of eleven, including the 11+, and if appropriate, scholarship examinations.
