PREPARATORY

CURRICULUM

The Preparatory School provides a stimulating learning environment and offers structured opportunities for academic, physical and social development, whilst encouraging children to become independent and take responsibility for their own learning.

At Brookhouse, we follow an adapted form of the British Curriculum whereby students study a range of subjects, including Mathematics, English, Science, Geography, History, Art, Physical Education, Music, a modern Foreign Language and ICT.

In the Preparatory School, students take tests in English, Mathematics and Science at various stages. In addition, they undertake a major examination at the end of Year 8 called ‘Common Entrance’ to mark the transition to Secondary School at age 13+. Such testing allows us to monitor pupil standards and to track individual progression in learning.

CLUB ACTIVITIES

The Prep School offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities, clubs and sports teams as part of the IAPS circuit. These activities help enrich the student’s learning experience.
