When children move up to the Prep school they begin to experience the full breadth of opportunities available to them at MHS. At every stage our children are keen to get the very most out of every experience they are offered whether it is through boarding, sport, music, drama, clubs or outings
Our children achieve fantastic results in all areas of school life, but, more importantly, they do not take the opportunities they have for granted; rather their experiences here help build self-assured individuals who are extremely supportive of each other – in short, they are good company!
At the lower end of the Prep school, we do all we can to ensure the transition from Pre-Prep to Prep is smooth and trouble free and the Head of Middle School, Catherine Walker, supports staff and parents in this part of the school.
Throughout the Prep school there are up to three classes per year group. Children in Years 3 and 4 are still taught for most subjects by their Form teacher (with the exception of ICT, French, Games & PE, RS, Music and DT). Specialist subject teaching is introduced across the curriculum at Year 5 and at this stage children choose either Latin or Spanish as a second language.
