Children move from Reception to Pre-Prep 1 familiar and confident in their routine and they are individually encouraged to carry out certain tasks, both in and out of the classroom, more independently.
Alongside the Nursery and Reception rooms, Pre-Prep 1 and 2 continue to be taught in the Boardman – a modern purpose built building fully equipped with the latest technologies and two large communal areas for assemblies and smaller class performances. There are two classes in each year group and they work closely together, particularly during Topic, Games, Gymnastics and Science, to give the children the opportunity to broaden their friendships across the year group and enhance discussions. They regularly use the well-equipped Music department and ICT Suites in the Manor House as well as the Performing Arts Theatre, Forest School and Sports Hall and extensive sports facilities.
At our Pre-Prep, we beguin to nurture children’s characters, and resilience is an important part of that. We create motivated learners who embrace challenges rather than shying away from them, learn from setbacks, and eagerly improve themselves in every area of their lives. Starting from a young age means that we produce confident, successful, and emotionally intelligent leavers who are comfortable in themselves and aware of how to progress after Prep School.
Beachborough’s team of teachers and support staff help children along their path and guide them to find their own interests and purpose. This ongoing process is essential to ensuring our children reach their own goals and fulfil their potential.
We aim to cultivate collaboration, curiosity, originality, perseverance, resilience, empathy, and encourage reflection. You can find out more about our Growth Mindset on the dedicated page.
