Parkside Pre Prep
Parkside Pre Prep is for boys aged 4-7. In this nurturing, child centred environment our aim is for all boys to reach their full potential so that they are ready to move into the Preparatory School with confidence and as independent learners.
The boys begin their Pre Prep journey in Reception which is the final year of EYFS. The teaching and learning provision actively promotes engagement, motivation and depth of learning. The small class sizes ensure a high level of focused teacher involvement. Each year group has a dedicated Teaching Assistant that further enhances the learning experiences.
We offer rich and varied educational experiences including termly trips. There are plenty of opportunities for creative, hands on experiences which will develop their naturally enquiring minds. The boys benefit from specialist teaching in French, Forest School, Music, Swimming, Sport, Gym, ICT, Drama and Art.
We believe that for boys to succeed, their self-esteem needs to be nurtured and developed. By celebrating individual effort, progress and achievement boys feel valued. Above all, we maintain a happy, vibrant, purposeful atmosphere in which we promote children's learning.
We give all our Pre Prep boys the opportunity to develop their talents in a wide range of team and individual sports. Throughout the year the boys play a variety of sports: football, rugby, cricket and athletics as well as having a weekly swimming lesson. All the boys are given the opportunity to represent the school in matches.
