Prep Academic

A dynamic curriculum that challenges learning

Academic studies at the Prep School


All pupils are encouraged to strive for academic excellence. Our independent status allows our staff to maintain flexibility to choose new developments in education while preserving traditional standards.

In the Prep School the syllabus in each subject is aimed at the requirements of National Curriculum up to the end of Year 6, and also the Common Entrance and Scholarship examinations at 13+.  This latter examination follows the outlines of the National Curriculum but deals with material in greater depth and extends the range of topics covered.  The Prep School has subject specialist teachers to enable this greater breadth of teaching. The majority of our pupils sit the Common Entrance examination, whilst some are also prepared for scholarship examinations.

The majority of our pupils move on to Monkton Senior after finishing Year 8 at the Prep School, but there is a always a number who secure entry to a range of well known independent schools. The School caters for the needs of gifted and talented pupils and also for those with moderate learning difficulties. Individual needs are assessed and suitable programmes designed to afford maximum support.
