Junior School is the boys' first taste of life at Northwood Prep. The emphasis is on making them feel at home in a caring environment and building firm foundations in literacy and numeracy. From the beginning each boy receives individual attention in small classes.

Senior School

In a caring and secure environment, lively minds are developed through learning experiences which are stimulating, challenging and purposeful. Exciting, vibrant work displays reflect our high standards and curriculum strengths. A sense of pride, in both personal work and that of others, is encouraged and through success, confidence is gained and self-respect built.

This helps build a healthy team spirit and encourages leadership skills which are a vital adjunct to their intellectual and spiritual development.

In Y4, opportunities are offered for residential visits which give the boys first-hand experiences of the curriculum, adding an exciting and supportive dimension to classroom teaching.

Y5 to Y8 in turn, prepare our boys for the challenges of their next chosen school and the process of growing into confident and responsible young men. It does so by developing skills, knowledge, values and self-confidence and by equipping them with the right tools to negotiate immediate challenges as well as to prepare for the demands of the future. Lessons are delivered by subject specialists in specialist teaching rooms, The boys are set by subject ability in the core curriculum froImages of Northwood Preparatory School, Londonm Year 6 but are otherwise grouped and taught in Forms on a social basis. This leads to the development of a scholarship set in Years 7 and 8 and to careful preparation for Entrance and Scholarship exams to a number of Independent and State schools.

Once again, the emphasis is focused on small class size, individual attention and pastoral care. There is also the value-added dimension of an intensive learning programme and an extensive schedule of Life Skills tuition, extra-curricular activities and a House system that involves and values every individual. Given our commitment to excellence throughout the whole school our success at preparing pupils for school transfer at 13+ comes as no surprise.
