Prep curriculum


In lower Prep, pupils enter exciting new territory through their introduction to our award-winning LabelFrancÉducation language French/English bilingual immersion programme, where up to 50 per cent of learning is conducted in French while the remainder of lessons are taught in English. For pupils joining in Years 3 and 4 who have limited proficiency in French, we have an alternative stream available in which all core subjects are taught in English. The immersion programme is completed at the end of Year 4.

The inclusive nature of the programme is based on the fundamental principle that everyone is carried along on the journey together, with levels of translation decreasing as language skills develop over time.

Naturally embraced by the children, this formative stage of their education provides benefits at many levels: it not only opens their minds to new cultural perspectives and personal accomplishments, it also opens the door to myriad future opportunities to travel, study and work.

Led by expert, subject-specialist teachers, Prep pupils begin to develop their knowledge and competence at more complex levels, serving them well for future progression.

From Year 5, academic goals are brought into sharper focus as students begin their journey towards their Senior years, and we are present to guide them at every point along the way.

We continue to extend their subject repertoire: Latin and Mandarin add to their appreciation of languages, and Computer Science brings applied understanding of coding and app development as well as online safety.
