"It is the perfect environment for any child, with nurturing teaching staff who see it as a personal achievement to get the best out of your daughter."

Expert beginnings

The range of teachers working within the Pre-Prep department and our excellent class sizes means that children receive a tailored curriculum, where particular strengths are promoted and challenged, and targeted support can be given to those developing their skills. As we know, not every child develops skills in the same order or at the same rate. We ensure that all children make their best progress in both the core and non-core subjects, whilst introducing them to wonderful opportunities and a world of possibilities.

Throughout the Pre-Prep department, indoor and outdoor areas of provision and challenge are established for all children to be able to work independently, increasing opportunities to take responsibility for their own learning, to reinforce and extend prior learning and to be creative. We have mapped the Early Years Foundation Stage and KS1 National Curriculum, transforming it into a progressive and unique Pre-Prep curriculum. Open-ended challenges will be used for those with more advanced skills, where more emphasis is placed on leadership, application, presentation, and higher-level thinking skills.

"Children make rapid progress in relation to their starting points, thus reaching or surpassing national age-related expectations by the end of Reception." ISI Report, October 2022.

We are proud that we were one of the first schools in the North East to take girls’ education seriously and together, it’s time to change the world again. You in?
