We believe our children have the very best start in education, building a strong foundation for their future learning. We pride ourselves on our outstanding pastoral care – building strong relationships with our parents and focusing on getting to know each individual child to develop their self-esteem, confidence and independence. Friendly pupils, enthusiastic and caring staff and a nurturing environment combine to make Queen’s College Pre-Prep a very special place for our younger children. Our specialist Early Years and Key Stage 1 teachers provide a wealth of opportunities and ensure children’s interests are developed and enriched in an active, multi-sensory learning environment. Dynamic and creative topic-based teaching provides a broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum for all children. Our academic curriculum is supported by Forest School and Outdoor Education activities, swimming lessons in our indoor heated pool and PE sessions. A free after school co-curricular programme further enhances the children’s learning. Early morning and late care are also included to support busy families.
The Prep School (Years 3 to 6) offers a vibrant and creative learning experience with a strong focus on community. Independent learning, active involvement and being accountable are important at Queen’s Prep. Our school motto ‘We educate not just for school, but for life’ forms the foundation of our learning ethos. Whilst academic progress is important, we ensure our children develop compassion, creativity, collaboration and resilience – skills which are essential to their onward journey in life. Our broad, balanced, exciting curriculum is enhanced by highly skilled, specialist teachers, who recognise that each child is unique and learns in different ways. Teaching is tailored to the needs of every child, allowing individuals to develop at their own rate to reach their full potential. Alongside our academic curriculum we provide an exciting and varied co-curricular programme and a unique outdoor education initiative. This gives our children the opportunity to experience learning beyond the classroom and develops their confidence, independence, self-esteem, communication skills, ability to take healthy risks and knowledge of the environment.
