Preparatory School Curriculum
Orwell Park offers academic challenge to all children and learning support for those who need it. In the classroom, a traditional curriculum (including Latin fromYear 6 onwards) is taught, using the most modern methods. Our Prep School employs motivated teachers with a passion for their subject, who will encourage academic self-reliance, helping all children in time to take responsibility for their own learning and personal organisation.
The curriculum offers breadth as well as academic rigour and all pupils in Years 3-8 have timetabled Art, Design and Technology and Drama. Children live in a digital world and at Orwell Park they are supported in their learning by Apple technology throughout the school; including two IT rooms, a Music Technology room, IT hubs in Art and Design and Technology, as well as access to mobile devices.
Stretch and challenge is provided both in and outside the classroom and the Orangery Lectures on a Tuesday evening cover a wide range of cultural and academic subjects. Pupils of all ages are encouraged to attend and parents are invited to share the learning experience with their children.
