The curriculum in the Prep is rich, engaging and hugely varied. Pupils are expected to make excellent progress. Teachers are passionate educators who believe in the importance of differentiation, assessment for learning and traditional teaching techniques to get the very best out of each child.

We recognise the importance of maintaining the highest standards but never lose sight of the individual needs of every child in our care. Academic rigour is at the heart of what we do, but we never forget that there is more to childhood and learning than exams.

We successfully prepare our pupils for senior school while also place a strong emphasis on providing a full and exciting curriculum. This includes creativity in all its forms; genuine intellectual challenges (not just skills to pass exams or complete course work), physical development, teamwork and leadership skills, moral, social, cultural and spiritual development, service to the community and to the world at large.

We believe that parent engagement with the curriculum and their child's learning is incredibly important. Throughout term, we invite our parents into school to see lessons that are being taught in Maths, Phonics, Computing and Science. 

Academic Scholarship Programme

We aim to provide each individual with many opportunities to shine as they progress through the Prep school and our scholarship programme from Year 4 upwards is one such opportunity.

Our scholarship programme promotes challenge and enrichment beyond the Radnor House formal curriculum.  We are very proud of the academic achievements of each child and have introduced this programme to celebrate those who are keen to challenge themselves and who demonstrate a love of learning and thirst for knowledge.

There are a number of workshops and talks for our Academic Scholars to attend, and plenty of opportunities for those children who aren't scholars to also be stretched and challenged including our termly 'Able Writers' Workshops'.

The subjects below are delivered throughout all years of the Prep School.
