Pupils’ attitudes towards learning and achievement are outstanding; these attitudes owe much to teaching that is often highly enthusiastic and staff who speak to pupils in a way that shows they value the pupils’ ideas and achievements.
Encouraging achievement at the highest level
An impressive number of scholarships and awards are won by St Andrew’s Prep pupils each year to a wide variety of senior schools.
Our success, in so many different disciplines, demonstrates the benefits of our broad curriculum that allows children to develop their talents to the full.
In order to sit a scholarship exam, children need to be in top academic sets with a particular flair for problem solving and thinking for themselves. They will also join enrichment groups and be very motivated to do well.
Senior schools often set their own scholarship papers and the requirements vary enormously. Non-academic awards are also offered by senior schools, most commonly in Art, Drama, Music and Sport.
