11 Plus Preparation
We are committed to our drive for academic excellence across all Prep School year groups and to ensuring that every child achieves their true potential by the time they leave us at the end of Year 6. We prepare our pupils to sit the 11+ examinations from Year 2. Find out more here.
It is recognised that homework is an important part of a pupil’s education and useful for consolidation and extension of work covered in class, as well as preparation for the next steps to be taken by the child. Homework strengthens the educational partnership between the teacher and the pupil and provides parents with an opportunity to share and support their child’s learning. It is also a means by which progress can be monitored. Homework promotes self-discipline and independent study.
