Hazlegrove Pre-Prep provides children with a wonderful start to school life. We ensure that your child has a really positive first experience of education, building a foundation for a life-long love of learning.
Our Pre-Prep is run by caring, creative and experienced staff who know exactly how to bring out the best in each pupil, and, most importantly, make learning fun! As part of the Hazlegrove school our Pre-prep children have access to an amazing array of resources including our 25m indoor swimming pool, theatre, dance studio and sports pitches.
We have excellent resources, small class sizes and have the flexibility to deliver the curriculum in a way that helps our children learn and consolidate that knowledge with practical experiments and activities. Our days are balanced with academic learning of key maths and literacy taking place in the morning, whilst afternoons are filled with creative and practical work including science, art, PE, Dance, Drama, Music, French and our popular Forest School sessions.
The chance to take part in such a wide variety of activities from a young age helps children discover the talents and passions that define them, feel proud of their achievements and develop confidence in their abilities.The Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum whilst also benefiting from the involvement of our specialist teachers, and the use of the Prep School facilities, for a number of their activities.
Pupils are taught by experienced class teachers whose priority is to ensure that each child learns in a way which attends to their individual priorities and needs. Teachers take their own classes to lunch and keep a close eye both on what they eat and how they eat it. In the afternoon, pupils Science and Art in the Rainbow Room (a classroom devoted to this purpose) as well as PE and Sport, Swimming, Tennis, Music, Dance and Drama, French and Forest School with specialist teachers, making full use of the Prep School staff.
We aim to give the children in our Nursery and Pre-Prep the very best start to their school lives.
