Academic

Welcome to St Andrew’s Prep School.  You will find details of all of our academic subjects in this section and please visit our School Life section to see everything else that we have to offer.

We aim to provide stimulating, challenging lessons delivered by inspiring teachers.  The classroom should be a joyful place where pupils can engage fully in class discussion and take pride in their work.  Visit our departmental pages to learn more about our enriched curriculum and read our topics of study on this page.

From Pre-Prep to Year 8 there is an emphasis on academic enquiry to keep the inquisitive mind busy and develop independent learning.

As a pupil moves up the School there are significant changes in the tenor and pace of lessons to ensure that intellectual growth and challenge are maintained.  There are classes for potential scholarship pupils as well as Learning Skills lessons for those who need a helping hand.  From Year 5, pupils are introduced to prep (homework) to learn the important skill of independent study.  Pupils are also helped along the way by a series of study skills lessons to introduce them to revision techniques.
