“The school provides a broad curriculum for all ages and abilities.”

At Winterfold, specialist teachers oversee a full and challenging programme of study, far exceeding the demands of the National Curriculum. Our pupils extend their learning, sharpen their knowledge and practice their skills in an atmosphere of support and encouragement. Horizons broaden, independence grows and confidence blooms at our Prep School. Learning is fun, life is exciting and that is just how we want things to remain.

The Curriculum at Winterfold includes the full range of Arts, Humanities, Sciences, Mathematics and Sport and all pupils experience a broad range of activities. As an independent school we are guided by the National Curriculum, but bound by it, this enables us to provide a broader curriculum which can include subjects such Latin and Classical Civilisation, and an early introduction to Modern Languages. Departments adapt and enhance their programmes of study to ensure that every pupil is motivated, inspired and challenged.

Classes are small and children are set in Mathematics and English. In this way a very individual approach can be offered to every child so that the learning style and pace is appropriate. 

The School is extremely keen to encourage academic excellence and will foster this as soon as it is spotted, but there is no question of ‘cramming’. We take time to make sure that all children have solid foundations for their learning and are fully secure in their knowledge and understanding of the syllabus. The preparation they receive is designed to help them succeed at senior school and Winterfold pupils have a fantastic record of achieving academic awards to senior schools.
