Beyond the Classroom
Taking trips off site as part of the learning experience is a major aspect of Pre-prep life.
These trips are used to contextualise pupils' learning, ignite imagination and spark passion by bringing their learning to life bring the History, Geography and Science topics to life. For example, during study of the oceans, a trip to Sealife Centre will give the pupils the chance to see the creatures they have been studying.
The Pre-prep Department also take trips out of school together, as one whole Department. These may be part of our Cultural and Religious Programme (a visit to a mosque, or church or temple), a theatre trip at Christmas or a zoo visit at the end of the year to reward the children and teachers for their hard work.
A lively programme of Activities gives Year 1 and Year 2 pupils the chance to try out new hobbies and develop interests with their friends. With activities including Boules and croquet, ballet, First Aid club, Recorder club, sports and cooking, there is something for everyone to get involved with and enjoy. The programme takes place from 3.45 - 4.45pm.
We help our pupils to understand the part they play in the local community, there are many opportunities to interact with and learn from older pupils. Pupils also take part in whole school events such as Charities Day organised by older students.
