Learning is the only thing the mind never exhausts, never fears, and never regrets – Leonardo da Vinci
At Chiswick and Bedford Park Preparatory School, we offer a full and rich curriculum combining the traditional academic subjects with the more creative and physical elements of School life. We follow the National Curriculum and complement this with other learning and enrichment activities.
We pride ourselves on providing outstanding learning opportunities for all children. We are proud of our well-qualified, dedicated and experienced teaching staff who offer a vibrant, diverse and challenging curriculum where children make excellent academic progress. We offer a high staff-pupil ratio and are committed to giving pupils a secure and happy environment in which to thrive, recognising that each child is unique, and helping each individual strive towards the best that they can be in every area.
Throughout the School children are predominantly taught by their Form Teacher, with some specialist teaching in Science, Computing, Music, PE, Swimming, French, and Dance. Children are given many opportunities to express themselves and perform in front of an audience, examples of which are the Christmas and Summer concerts, but also in class assemblies, to which parents are invited. There are opportunities within the classroom for pupils to develop their confidence in speaking and listening such as ‘show and tell’ in the earlier years, discussion and debating, and whole School assemblies.
Classroom teaching is enhanced by regular exciting and educational visits and workshops. Special events such as World Book Day, Science Week, Kindness Week, Money Week and other whole School themes are celebrated through external visitors, class presentations and assemblies.
