Throughout the course of Year 2, children are prepared for their move to the Prep School Years 3 & 4. Whilst there is a physical transition the children have used the facilities and grounds throughout their time in the Pre-Prep and so are familiar with the site. This, alongside, outstanding communication between the Year 2 and Year 3 teachers makes for a seamless transition between these two stages of the school.
The children in Years 3 and 4 are nurtured by their Form Teachers whose central purpose is the welfare and happiness of the pupils in their care. The vast majority of their lessons are also taught by their Form Teacher. Additionally, they benefit from the Prep School specialist teachers and departments (French, Music, Art, DT and Sports); they enjoy the additional space and continue to grow and flourish in their Holmewood journey.
The day extends by an hour in Year 3, the last hour of the day being an extensive games and activity programme. We offer a vast range of co-curricular activities, making full use of our splendid facilities and giving the children the chance to ‘have a go’ at many different things.
