Open Day: book your place

Prep School

The Prep School at St. Anthony’s School for Girl’s equips each pupil with the academic ability, social awareness, confidence and self-motivation required for a natural transition to senior school.

The Curriculum

The National Curriculum begins formally in Year 1 where each girl is predominantly taught by their class teacher. Developing skills in English and Mathematics are key at this stage in their school life, although a broad and balanced curriculum is delivered by the class teacher with language, music, sport, IT and Art being taught by subject specialists.

Homework

Homework in the lower school focuses on developing phonic and reading skills. The enjoyment of reading is nurtured through a wide range of exciting home reader titles available alongside our library scheme which enables pupils to borrow more difficult texts which can be enjoyed with a parent or carer. Spelling and comprehension activities will be set once the child has reached a level of fluency within their reading. This will be complimented by maths activities which focus on the development of number skills, fluency and reasoning.

Independent Learning

As the girls mature and move into the junior classes, they are encouraged to take ownership of their learning and gain a positive attitude towards their own development and success. Independence is nurtured through the expectation that the girls strive to meet their own personal targets and those set by their teachers. They manage their own homework and prioritise time for additional study around their extra-curricular activities.

School Council and Charity

St. Anthony’s girls are encouraged to contribute to the wider life of the school through participating in the School Council and our various charity committees. The older girls support our newer recruits through our ‘Big Sister’ programme, helping them to settle into and enjoy the routines of school life.

Trips and Events

As a London school we take full advantage of a wide range of attractions and visits including museums, art galleries, theatres, and performing arts venues. In addition, girls in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 go further afield taking part in residential trips, not only to extend their curriculum experience but also to help them develop their independence and resilience.
