Welcome to Prep

Historically the movement of children into any senior school environment is sometimes perceived as a major leap. At St. Andrew's however, the transition will be made as smooth as possible for you and your child as we fully appreciate the need for close academic and pastoral links between Year 2 and Year 3.

Year 3 is very similar to Year 2 in that the children are still very much form room based. The class teacher will still teach their form for the majority of the time. This is especially important in the core subjects of English and Maths and Science. We continue to have an open door policy and, if you have any questions, please speak to your class teacher.

The development of the children can then be continued and further enhanced in Year 3 and above. By the end of Year 3 for the very first time, children are set for Maths, English and French and regular half term assessments take place. continued......

  • Of course the best memory about St. Andrew's will be the feeling that you belong.

  • The School very quickly identified our daughter’s potential as a high achiever and provided the tools in all areas. They also helped to set a daily routine, particularly with Prep finished at school.
