Curriculum

In Reception, as with the Alice Nursery, girls follow the revised Early Years Foundation Stage which sets out goals for learning. The seven areas are as follows:-

Prime Areas:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Physical development

Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

From Year 1 girls have access to a more formal and wider curriculum, including Maths, Literacy, Science and Humanities. The girls are taught Art, Design and Technology, Drama, Physical Education and Music by subject specialist teachers. Regular assessment ensures that work is of exceptional standard which is reflected in the Key Stage 1 end of year results.

Pupils in the Prep Department also have the opportunity to engage in learning activities outside of the classroom to support the curriculum. Recent school trips include visits to Whipsnade Zoo and the Tower of London.
