At Spratton Hall, we believe that the first few years of a child’s education are of vital importance and that learning is all about discovery, excitement, opportunities and very importantly – fun!
In our long-established Pre-Prep, this year celebrating its 40th anniversary, we understand the uniqueness of young children ~ their interests are stimulated and captivated by different things and they learn in a variety of ways. Passionate about teaching and learning, our experienced staff dedicate great time, care and consideration into tailoring their lessons and the learning environments to meet the needs of individuals, so that every child is happy and learning well. With bright, colourful, well-resourced classrooms, we provide a safe, positive, nurturing environment in which children can discover their inner strengths, confidence and a love of learning.
The Pre-Prep Department consists of three year groups, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Each class has its own teacher and at least one full-time teaching assistant. Nestled in the heart of the school, Pre-Prep has its own routines and well-established purpose-built classrooms, providing children with a feeling of comfort and security, whilst also benefitting from the excellent and extensive facilities shared with the senior school.
A range of subjects including Literacy, Mathematics and Phonic activities are explored daily and create firm foundations for future learning. We also pride ourselves on hearing every child read every day. Through engaging hands-on activities, knowledge, understanding and skills are developed, creativity and independence are encouraged, successes are celebrated and effort is always praised.
Pre-Prep is about providing children with a happy and positive start to their school life and fully preparing them for the next exciting challenges in their education. I urge you to come and visit us, so that you can see our vibrant Pre-Prep Department in action and be introduced to the wonderful staff, and the children, of whom we are so immensely proud.
