Pre-Prep is on the same site as the Prep School and the children often take part in our whole school activities enabling close links between our Pre-Prep and the Prep School. Children know many of the Prep School staff before they enter the Prep School, for example the swimming, gym, music, French and ball skills coaches all teach across both departments.
Throughout the year the Pre-Prep children use the wonderful facilities in the Prep School, such as the Computing Suite and they become very familiar with the layout of the Prep School before transferring. Year 2 are given the opportunity to be elected to the Academic Committee, Eco-Committee or School Council in which they represent Pre-Prep to the whole school.
During the summer term, we organise plenty of activities to encourage a smooth transition; the children visit the Year 3 classes, they often have a carpentry or art lesson, enjoy a French picnic, play with the older classes and choose a snack from the break trolley. A highlight is a tour of the Prep School for Year 2 parents and their children with Prep School guides.
