The Curriculum

Glyn House - Years 3 – 6

We are passionate about helping the children to become independent, resilient and motivated learners. At Glyn House a broad, balanced and varied curriculum is offered to the children. Although we closely follow the National Curriculum we also have the flexibility to branch off at times and follow other areas of research and enquiry often capitalising on the children’s own interests. In addition to the core curriculum children follow a PSHEE programme each week and have a Philosophy for children lesson (P4C) every Monday morning.

At Key Stage 2 children are taught in mixed ability groups, setting only for Maths. All teachers have high expectations of children, fully supporting them to reach their full potential via carefully planned differentiated lessons; children are encouraged to become independent learners by self-selecting appropriate challenges. In addition, our Year 6 children have the opportunity to attend some lessons at the Senior School, enjoying the benefits of a full Science Laboratory, Design and Technology and ICT suites.

 

Challenge

At Ewell Castle Preparatory School we have high expectations of all pupils and ensure that each receive the support and challenge necessary to help them to develop their full potential irrespective of starting points. We recognise the importance of identifying a wide range of abilities and talents and of providing opportunities to nurture them. In addition to this, we recognise that in order to progress and achieve their full potential, Higher Learner Potential (HLP) pupils need to receive a higher level of challenge than the majority; this register is updated on a regular basis through on-going assessments. We ensure these children are stretched through competitions with other schools, visiting speakers, additional workshops and extension groups. Many of our children go on to sit the scholarship exam for entry into the Senior School at our recommendation.
