It goes without saying that Banstead Prep School has high academic expectations, but our curriculum goes far beyond what most prep schools are able to offer. Our exceptional facilities, dedicated staff and specialist subject teachers enable us to go above and beyond, to consistently offer our children that little bit more. We want exceeding your expectations to be the norm.
The pace of technological advances means the jobs many of our younger children will go into don’t even exist yet. With this in mind we believe it’s vital to equip every child with the adaptable, transferable skills, for whatever path they may take.
Children from Reception to Year 2 have weekly specialist teaching in Music, PE, swimming, French, Drama and Food Technology (and Art from Year 1), and visit Forest School. From Year 3 children receive additional sport and our Life Skills curriculum, which includes enterprise, study skills, textiles, food technology, PSHCEE and design technology. From Year 4, children progress to a fully developed specialist teaching programme, with a subject specialist teacher for every lesson.
