St Edmund's





“Learning at St Edmund’s is interactive, creative and fun. We are focused on the needs of the individual children, and ensure they are given the time and space to develop their creative and academic capabilities”.

Sarah Bartholomew, Head of Nursery & Pre-Prep



In Pre-Prep, teaching follows, but is not limited to, the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum. English and Mathematics are timetabled daily to ensure continuity of progress. Reading is of prime importance, and we work to both develop fluent reading skills and inspire a love of reading.

We take a topic-based approach to covering many areas of the curriculum – for example, Science, Geography, History, Art, Design & Technology and ICT; and children from Reception Class age also receive specialist teaching in French, Music, PE, swimming and Dance. We also want our children to develop the confidence to show their skills in front of others, which they do through ‘show and tell’ before progressing to drama workshops, poetry recital, music festivals, Nativity plays and end of term Chapel services.

Beyond the formal curriculum, children enjoy activities from clubs and trips, to school visitors and working with teachers from the Senior and Junior Schools.
