The Nursery at St. Margaret’s is where children begin their educational journey with us from 2 years old. In the Nursery, children are introduced to basic educational practices through play-based activities which makes learning fun and engaging.
When they approach 5 years of age children move into Reception where class sizes are small, and subjects are more structured within the Early Years curriculum. After Reception, children move into our purpose built Pre-Prep classrooms (Years 1 and 2) where great emphasis is given to mastering basic number, reading and writing skills, as well as discovering History, Geography ICT and Science, largely through topic work.
The final destination on the St. Margaret’s educational journey is the Prep School (Years 3-6). In the Prep School, children continue the National Curriculum and the expectations of the independent curriculum to prepare them for senior school. Children are prepared for entrance examinations, including the 11+.
