We welcome children from age 3+ into the three year groups in the Pre-Prep Department. Pupils usually join the Department in September, or occasionally in January if space permits. Class sizes are small, around 23 per class, with two classes catering for 3 year olds (Pre-Prep 1), two for 4 year olds (Pre-Prep 2) and two for 5 year olds (Pre-Prep 3) who are prepared for the transition to the Prep Department. Eligible children in Pre-Prep 1 may currently avail of the Government’s ECCE scheme.
The Head of Pre-Prep oversees the day-to-day running of the Department, including pastoral care provision and admissions. Each of the classes is taught by a fully qualified and experienced teacher, supported by classroom assistants who are also qualified teachers.
