A perfect preparatory boarding school in Oxford! We present Dragon school, a co-educational boarding school in Oxford, Oxfordshire, England. The Dragon curriculum is tailored to the needs of the pupils and their future aspirations. While the National Curriculum is a useful starting point, departments adapt and enhance their programmes of study to ensure that every pupil is motivated, inspired and challenged. In addition to the core subjects of English and Mathematics, the Dragon syllabus includes Modern Languages, Classical Languages, Science, Music, Religious Studies, ICT, Art, Drama, Design and Technology, and PE. It also includes philosophy, ethics and the principles and practice of philanthropy.
Classes are small and streaming and setting are used. In this way a very individual approach can be offered to every child so that the learning style and pace is appropriate. The Dragon recognises that emotional health and academic development are interlinked.
At Dragon Pre-Prep, Lynams the foundations are laid for the Dragon tradition of combining hard work with fun. Academic skills are developed through carefully planned Schemes of Work, which follow and extend the National Curriculum. We aim to develop the particular skills and knowledge of each discipline from the very beginning.
At every level, we strive to make our pupils independent learners, well-prepared for the next stage in their development. By Years 7 and 8 the curriculum is planned largely, though not entirely, according to the Scholarship and Common Entrance requirements of the leading independent senior schools.
