About the school

Long description:

All pupils of this preparatory boarding school are prepared for Common Entrance at 13+ or Scholarships to their public schools. The National Curriculum guidelines are followed lower down in the school whilst always looking for opportunities to stretch pupils academically. This top UK preparatory boarding school has always been proud of achieving scholarships and awards across the curriculum and our record speaks volumes of the quality of teaching we are able to offer. In recent years this top UK boarding school  havs won major scholarships to Winchester, Benenden, Stowe and Eastbourne. In the junior half of the school in the 5s and 4s (Years 3, 4 and 5), as well as the core subjects of Maths, English, Science and French, every child receives teaching in Geography, History, RS, Art, DT, Music, PE, ICT, Chess and Drama. The final three years focuses on preparation for Common Entrance at 13+. Latin is introduced whilst some of the other small subjects become optional activities. This is tactfully interrupted with a term spent at Chateau de Sauveterre, which gives every child in the 2s (Year 7) the opportunity to immerse themselves in French culture and language as well as giving them a valuable social experience. The confidence and love of languages gained from this is unquestionable. Children in Years 6 & 7 have practice sessions of Verbal & Non Verbal Reasoning. The academic curriculum is carefully complimented with a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Games, Clubs and Activities all form a busy and stimulating day for every child, hence giving them the best possible education.
