Feeding their curiosity
Years 3 – 6
During your child’s time in the Preparatory Department, we develop a Unique Learning Programme centred on their individual requirements, aptitude and personality.
The structure of our rich and broad Preparatory curriculum is designed to both stimulate and support the developing child. Subjects such as History, Languages, Music, Art, PE, ICT, Design and technology and Sport are taught by highly specialised teachers.
Stem subjects are enriched with practical hands on activities and experiments. Pupils can also opt for instrumental tuition with our experienced Peripatetic teachers. Our children benefit from a seamless transition from the Preparatory department to the Senior School.
St. Dominic’s also offer an ’11+ programme,’ which is tailored towards each individual child’s ability.
Pupils have the opportunity to experience a variety of trips to enrich learning. This includes visits to historical landmarks, places of worship and trips both locally such as, Condover Hall and abroad including, Italy and France.
Our Preparatory School is well equipped with its own fully refurbished ICT suite, Art & Design Technology room, Food technology room, Library, playing fields, hardcourt area and main Hall. Pupils also have use of Ipads to aid their learning. This is all houses within a modern, purpose built building, with light, airy classrooms and an enclosed area.
The close home and school partnership is a particular strength of the Preparatory department. A a parent, you are always welcome in School, with daily access to the teachers and your child’s education.
