Prep School 7-11

Welcome to the Prep Department at St Joseph’s School. We aim to provide our children with a firm foundation as they continue to grow and develop on their journey through education and into the wider world.

The Prep Department is a vibrant, creative and collaborative community. Our well-qualified and experienced staff create a nurturing and exciting environment in which every child is encouraged to reach their full potential.

Our challenging and innovative curriculum is supported by our extensive use of digital technology, in the form of class sets of iPads, which allow learning opportunities to take place throughout the school and not just within the four walls of the classroom.

We provide specialist teaching in Science, Music, French, Drama, Computing and PE. Children also have the opportunity to take extra tuition in Music, Ballet and Tennis. These opportunities are balanced with daily lessons in Maths and English and regular Outdoor School lessons which make full use of our idyllic location in our peaceful riverside classroom.

Through close relationships with our parents we ensure the learning process is highly effective and we are able to meet the diverse needs of our learners both academically and pastorally. We are committed to providing a firm foundation for all children in our care as they look forward to the exciting next steps in education.

We hope you enjoy looking through the following pages of the website and that this gives you an introduction into our lives in the Prep Department. We would be delighted to meet with you so that you can see for yourselves the wonderful work that takes place at St Josephs School.
