Pre-Prep (Pre-Reception – Year 2)

At New Hall School, we have a Pre-Prep provision for pupils aged 3 to 7 years. In our Pre-Prep classes, we provide highly stimulating, inspirational and planned learning experiences, delivered by experienced and dedicated staff.

We believe that children learn through play and our activities are planned to facilitate the EYFS seven areas of learning and development:

communication and language; physical development; personal, social and emotional development; literacy; mathematics; understanding the world and expressive arts and design.

In addition, children are introduced to the timetabled subjects of Religious Education, French, Music, Dance and Physical Education, taught by the same specialist teachers as the rest of the school.

Pre-Prep pupils experience learning opportunities which support their development and stimulate their natural desire to explore and investigate, such as nature trails in the stunning grounds of the New Hall campus of growing and tending to the vegetables in the gardens.

Our Pre-Prep pupils are able to experience annual educational visits to embed the learning of their topics. We also invite visitors into our classrooms, such as paramedics and storytellers, to assist in bringing the children’s learning alive.
