Preparatory School



Churchie’s Preparatory School (for students from Reception to Year 6) offers an excellent foundation to learning within a caring, disciplined and exciting environment, supported by state-of-the-art facilities and resources.
 
Our ‘boy responsive’ curriculum ensures an intellectually challenging learning experience, with students emerging from their preparatory years as articulate, confident and independent learners who increasingly take responsibility for their own learning.
 
The Reception or Prep Year programme offers an ideal environment for a boy’s first formal year of learning. Students experience an academic programme underpinned by a thinking-skills curriculum, empowering them with the skills to learn purposefully. Student learning is enhanced through participation in weekly extension and enrichment activities with a focus on technology.
 
With a view to the future, the School has entered the Candidacy phase of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. This is a globally recognised learning framework that places the student at the centre of learning and will assist to prepare our students for their place in the global community.
 
As an academic school, explicit teaching is focused on developing high level literacy and numeracy skills supported by cooperative learning strategies that engage, excite and challenge learners.
 
The development of each student’s character is supported through a Virtues Education Programme and a strong commitment to Anglican values, explored through weekly chapel services and Religious Education lessons. Wide and varied opportunities abound for co-curricular achievement and personal growth, offering a dynamic learning experience beyond the classroom.
