Stonar School

You are here: Welcome Prep School Academic


Our busy, lively curriculum, delivered by the Prep School’s excellent teachers inspires creativity and intellectual curiosity. Topic-led work brings an exciting dimension to the curriculum, immersing children in a learning experience which builds skills and knowledge across the subjects. The emphasis is firmly on active learning. Pupils enjoy lots of trips and activities which support their learning and keep them stimulated and engaged.


Some pupils show obvious academic ability from an early age; others may need more encouragement. At Stonar Prep we help each child discover their aptitudes and develop their confidence as they experience numerous opportunities within and beyond the classroom. Pupils are encouraged to aim for the best in all that they do, whether it is academic, sporting, creative or performance, and we have high expectations of them.

We encourage the boys and girls to take responsibility for their own learning, behaviour and progress. This helps them become more independent. We involve parents in their child’s education at every step along the way; progress is regularly and rigorously reported and the achievements of pupils are recognised and celebrated.

Because the children learn and grow within our secure and nurturing environment, they develop a caring attitude towards each other, their school and the world around them. This is underpinned by the Prep School CARE code which was devised by the children to summarise our school rules;

Communicate kindly

Aim high – always do your best

Respect – treat others as you would be treated yourself

Enjoy – and appreciate what you have.

As part of the NACE Schools group, Prep children have unique opportunities for language immersion, exchanges and links with pupils in Spain and France. Progress is monitored by form tutors so the more able pupils receive challenging tasks that take them beyond their comfort zone; our outstanding Learning Support department is available for girls and boys with specific individual learning needs.

When pupils progress to the Senior School, we ensure that they are ready for the next stage of their education as confident learners equipped with the skills required to thrive.
