Senior Prep

Senior Prep: Years 5 – 8

The Senior Prep part of the school begins at the end of Year 4, when the children move up from the Junior Prep phase of the school.

Senior Prep pupils become ambitious and independent learners, immersed in a skills-based, interconnected curriculum, meaningful and highly relevant to their everyday experiences and life beyond school.

We enable our children to make connections across subjects and think more deeply about their significance, applying their learning across different contexts and developing core, transferable skills, such as critical thinking and strong reasoning skills, where they judge the value of ideas and knowledge presented to them.

Our founder wanted to create a school that helped children develop the moral, intellectual and social skills to help them prosper in the world and stand up for truth.

We create an environment as well as a curriculum that develops the moral virtues, responsibility and social conscience of each pupil, motivating and inspiring them to become global citizens, helping to lead and support effective change in the world.
