Academic

At Culford Pre-Prep we understand the importance of leaning basic skills which is why our pupils receive daily lessons in numeracy and literacy.  Ours is a structured approach to developing learning and we include creative writing, grammar and phonics classes with daily one-to-one reading sessions.

Knowing that children learn in different ways and at different paces, we adopt a range of teaching styles and strategies to ensure that every child is engaged and motivated in their learning. Lessons are therefore enhanced by using interactive whiteboards, laptops and iPads.

As well as traditional learning, we also try to develop the children’s skills through alternative approaches. Philosophy for children, for example, encourages a deeper level of understanding through listening, reading and questioning.  We also encourage our children to think about their own learning and take the time to understand what works best for them as individuals.

Through regular assessments we closely monitor and predict your child’s progress and work with you to ensure that their potential is fulfilled.
