Why Prep School?

It is well known that the benefits of an independent education are cumulative and that they make most difference to outcomes for children the earlier the investment in them is made. The small class sizes in our Prep school mean that each and every child is well known by their teachers. We regularly see the children outperform their peers in other schools, including other independent schools, having started at the same baseline.

A Day in the life of ...

Nicholas in Prep School

8:20am

This morning my mum dropped me off at Earlybirds as she had to be in work early. I usually play with my friend Jamie before we walk to the Prep building together.

9:00am

My first lesson is science. At the moment we are studying volcanoes and layers of the earth, including fossils. This lesson we learnt that a fossil is made when water and minerals replace the bones of the dead animal but keep the shape of the skeleton.

11.00am

Break time is one of my favourite times of the day. We usually play games outside. If it's muddy we wear our wellies. My favourite games are tig and blocky. I like playing with my friends from other year groups

11.15am

I have maths with Mrs Wallis. Today we start the lesson by playing maths bingo - if the answer to the question is one of our numbers then we cross it off. The first one to get all 6 is the winner. Mrs Wallis knows how to make maths fun!

1.30pm

This afternoon I have PE which is one of my favourite subjects. Today we are playing football. Mr Scholfield helps us learn different skills such as how to dribble, shoot and to be a good goalkeeper.

4.00pm

Today I have Karate after school. I go every week and I am currently a red belt. I like the pad work, it's my favourite part. My mum picks me up after Karate - I'm always ready for my tea!
