‘Pupils develop a good level of self-confidence as they progress through the school, underpinned by its strong nurturing, family ethos’
– Park Hill School ISI Inspection Report, 2020
Year One and Two children are taught in small teaching groups by their class teacher with the support of specialist staff for key subjects. The children enjoy their Games lessons at the outstanding Kingston Grammar School sporting facilities at Ditton Field, in addition to a weekly swimming lesson where they develop stroke competency and water confidence.
Staff to pupil ratios are excellent across the school, enabling children of all abilities to reach their full potential. Park Hill Pre-Prep encourages and develops independent thinking from its pupils in all areas of school life and the curriculum. Children are encouraged to develop their interest in the world around them through our popular Woodland School program, where the children use both our extensive gardens and nearby Richmond Park as a base for outdoor learning.
The modern Pre-Prep curriculum addresses the needs of all children. A programme of continuous assessment is followed throughout the Pre-Prep Department, where we monitor the children and offer specialised learning support when needed.
A wide variety of extra-curricula clubs are available after school and these run alongside Breakfast Club and After School Care.
