Prep School

Years Three to Six

Preparatory School (or Prep School for short) is our name for Year Three to Year Six at RGS The Grange. In the lower years of Prep, your child’s core subjects are primarily delivered by class teachers as they transition from a topic approach to more discrete specialist lessons. Your child will be taught Sports, Music, French, Computing and PE by specialist teachers who really inspire and foster a passion in these areas.

Innovative teaching and learning

Your child will be taught in a mixed-ability group for English, Science and the foundation subjects and they will be grouped for Mathematics according to ability and progress. This allows us to stretch and challenge your child and provide additional time to embed the basics.

From Year Three, your child will have access to their own iPad to allow full involvement in our Digital Learning Programme, which develops literacy and numeracy skills alongside traditional educational practices.

It is vital that your child has time in the school day for immersion and focus on different areas of the curriculum. For this reason, we have remodelled our timetable to provide a variety of exciting afternoons.

  • Dedicated Science afternoons when your child develops their curiosity and investigative and reasoning skills through Science, including hands-on, practical activities
  • Creative afternoons where your child’s imagination can soar using a range of materials in DT and Art
  • Humanity afternoons covering History and Geography, often supported by one of our termly school trips to bring learning to life
  • Wellbeing afternoons, including PSHCE, which provides your child with the knowledge and skills to keep themselves happy, healthy and safe, as well as to prepare them for life and work
