A safe and secure foundation for little learners to thrive

Welcome to Pre-Prep (Year 1 & 2) at Kingscourt Prep School, where we believe in providing a safe and secure foundation for our little learners to thrive.

We understand that each child is unique and learns in their own special way, which is why we tailor our approach to meet their individual needs.

With our spectacular 25 acres of outdoor space, we offer an abundance of opportunities for outdoor learning and exploration.

At this stage, commonly referred to as Key Stage 1, we lay the groundwork for a lifelong love of learning, fostering a nurturing environment that celebrates the joy of discovery and growth.

Kingscourt Prep School is awarded the highest possible grade: double EXCELLENT in recent ISI Inspection 2023.

Pre-Prep Reception

Using the Early Years Foundation curriculum as its basis, children continue to enjoy play based learning coupled with a more formal timetable; our children participate in English, Maths and reading each day alongside a range of subjects including outdoor learning, PE and Spanish.

Pre-Prep Years 1 & 2

Continuing the firm foundations achieved in Early years, the curriculum becomes more focused with a clear timetable that builds on key English and Maths skills with the addition of Science, Geography and History and PSHE.

Pupils throughout the school have highly developed study skills relative to their age due to their being encouraged to express their opinions, discuss and question with confidence.

Outdoor Adventures

Harnessing the great outdoors

We make great use of the beautiful outdoor space we have here at Kingscourt, for learning as well as sport and play.

Outdoor Learning at Kingscourt is about exploring and experiencing the natural world through practical activities. Children go out in all weathers, all year round. Dedicated sessions take place weekly for all children, but opportunities to be outdoors occur daily. These sessions include den building, knot tying, exploring textures and materials, planting, growing and monitoring seasonal change.

We believe children thrive when their learning is fuelled by a spirit of adventure and this motivates them to become more independent learners back in the classroom.

Our woodland environment is central in supporting this very dynamic approach to learning. The children experience the vibrant nature of an outdoor environment. They see and feel the change of seasons and the impact of this on the environment around them.
