Prep School Curriculum

At Farringtons Prep School, we ignite a love of learning that goes beyond the National Curriculum. Our curriculum is designed to spark curiosity and equip your child with the foundational skills they need to flourish. Through a blend of engaging subjects, specialist teachers, and a focus on core skills like reading, writing, and numeracy, we create a stimulating learning environment that prepares children for success in Senior School and beyond. Explore our approach to education and discover how Farringtons can nurture your child’s potential.


  • Individualised learning: we build on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) principles, tailoring activities to each child’s needs and interests. Exploration and investigation spark curiosity and lay the foundation for independent learning
  • Engaging subjects: specialist teachers bring Physical Education, Music, Computing, and French to life. We encourage children to embrace new experiences and learn from their mistakes
  • Challenging academics: our Maths Mastery curriculum and creative English programme develop critical thinking skills, fostering astute and perceptive learners


  • Seamless transition: we understand the importance of a smooth transition from Reception to Year 1. Our teachers build on existing knowledge and social skills, ensuring a supportive learning environment
  • Core skills focus: reading, writing, and numeracy form the backbone of our curriculum. We utilise a dynamic blend of classroom and specialist teaching to ensure strong foundational skills
  • Personalised support: children requiring additional support or those excelling receive tailored interventions from our qualified staff


  • Luceat Programme: this programme is designed to spark curiosity, nurture independence, and equip our young learners with crucial life skills
  • Forest School: our onsite Forest School is a wonderful learning environment, in which children in every year group across the Prep School can develop their imagination, critical thinking and learn to manage risks in an unpredictable and challenging space
  • Homework partnership: we believe in an active parent-teacher partnership. Regular homework complements classroom learning, and we encourage parental involvement
  • Enriching activities: a variety of activities including music, sports and individual instrument tuition, balance academic work with fun and exploration
  • Unwavering support: our dedicated pastoral care team offers support throughout the school journey

At Farringtons Prep School, we nurture confident, creative, and independent learners who are well-equipped for future success.

"My child has made excellent progress in Year One. He is well stimulated and thoroughly interested by the co-curriculum offered. The teachers are invested in supporting the children and often go beyond the call of duty. He feels comfortable and safe to be himself and has made great friends." Prep School Parent
