Prep school girls

Welcome to Prep School

As pupils progress through our Prep school, they engage with a broad curriculum designed to help young learners develop the knowledge and skills that leave all paths open to them. From English, Maths and Sciences to Humanities, Art, Sport, Music and Drama, all areas of study give pupils space to explore and discover their own passions.

Developing minds require stimulating environments, both in the classroom and in the outside world. Between our specialist teaching spaces and our partnership with the British Trust for Ornithology, there are no limits to how and where our pupils learn to wonder.

By encouraging intellectual curiosity and providing breadth and depth of opportunity, we enable our pupils to find a journey of academic and personal development that is perfectly suited to them. Over time, this leads perfectly on to success at the highest levels within our Senior school and Sixth Form.

From Nursery to Year Six, our academic programme, the Exploration Curriculum, is informed by our Prep mission statement:

Discover the World Thetford Grammar Prep provides a safe, caring environment that gives every pupil the skills, opportunities and motivation to learn from and about the world around them. 

Our curriculum is designed to open up a voyage of discovery for all, taking them on a journey through history, across the globe and out into the universe beyond. Our curriculum is designed to build breadth of expertise, including in English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Design Technology, Computing, Languages, Art, Music, Drama and Sport. We do this by fostering a life-long love of learning.

Our pupils discover the world, they learn to understand the world, and they begin to find their own place in the world. Our pupils leave Thetford Grammar Prep equipped with the knowledge and understanding of how to harness their limitless potential.
