BE THE BEST YOU
Repton Prep’s curriculum is varied, stimulating and demanding, but flexible enough to ensure that no child is left behind. Self-motivation, an enquiring mind and an eagerness to learn are all cultivated here, but most importantly our pupils learn how to learn – a lifelong skill.
At Repton Prep we want each child to establish their individual place within the school community and an understanding of transferable skills, which is something that our Head, Mrs Vicky Harding, is passionate about:
“Providing links for pupils between subjects so they don’t see maths, languages, science, humanities, the arts and sport in isolation, but have the ability and tools to join the dots between the skills that they are learning from lesson-to-lesson, and even during their after-school clubs and activities, is vital.
Encouraging children to be curious is the wonderful thing about being an educator. So, during a science lesson talking about how they feel physically when they play sport and then getting outside to re-enact that; taking algebra into the woods; or discovering that many children’s authors, such as Beatrix Potter and Arthur Ransome drew inspiration from the landscape by taking an English lesson next to our lake all make for a much richer educational experience.”
