Foundation subjects (Art, Drama, French, Latin, Geography, History, Music, PE, Religious Studies, and Design Technology) are also taught and assessed alongside the core subjects, twice a year.  Prestfelde’s syllabus is an enrichment of National Curriculum and the Common Entrance syllabus. It also meets the requirements of scholarship entrance for senior Independent Schools, and the entrance examinations requirements for State grammar schools.
