Welcome to the Pre-Prep
The Pre-Prep department at Heywood Prep includes Reception to Year Two. During these key years at the school the children settle into the routine of school and develop confidence and a love of learning which will stands them in good stead for the later stages of their education.
In Reception, children are eased into school life gradually over the course of the year. They continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage programme, with its focus on child-initiated as well as adult-led learning. During their first term at the school, children in Reception will present an assembly to the whole school. Far from being daunting, the children find this to be an exhilerating experience.
In Years One and Two, the learning style becomes more formal, but always with an emphasis on enjoyment. During these years, children make rapid progress in numeracy and literacy, as well as enjoying a broad curriculum that includes history, science and modern languages.
