The Benefits of a Surbiton High Boys’ Preparatory School Education at Prep/KS2

Posted: 22nd August 2019

Moving a child at the end of Key Stage One (Year 2) can seem like a daunting process if they have settled in well to school. However, there are many advantages to moving a child into a prep school environment from an infant school or pre-prep school.

Small class sizes provide more focused attention on each child, ensuring they can access all elements of the curriculum. It can also allow areas of difficulty or necessary extension to be quickly identified and a tailored curriculum developed to match each child’s need.

The bespoke curriculum on offer at Surbiton High Boy’s Preparatory School expands children’s minds beyond the confines of the national curriculum. Our mastery approach to learning ensures boys are secure in their knowledge before moving on to the next stage. This process of scaffolding their learning allows us to build a real depth to their understanding of different subjects and concepts, vital to their future success. The breadth of learning habits taught through every lesson instils a strength of character, a resolve for persevering when things are beyond a child’s current ability, and a range of entrenched skills to deal with the unknown.

Preps often offer subject specific teachers for core subjects from Year 3 and at Surbiton High Boys’ Prep this provides a dedicated focus and expertise on those key building blocks of an excellent academic education. This happens not just in subjects such as English and Maths but also those critical creative subjects, such as Art and Music, which are often compromised within the state school environment.

Our Boys’ Preparatory School is a school with a real soul; a small community built to nourish young boys’ minds, allowing them to flourish.

We look forward to welcoming you into the School to see us in action. If you would like to book a visit, please enquire here.
