St Teresa’s Prep School offers a rich and varied curriculum aiming for academic excellence at all times. We believe that children excel academically when they are inspired to learn so our curriculum is delivered through a range of exciting and engaging topics and built upon a progressive ladder of skills. Cross curricular links are made wherever possible and educational visits and workshops are planned to complement and embed learning in the classroom. As well as being well prepared academically, an education at St Teresa’s ensures that the children are well equipped for the future so that they can be the inspirational leaders of tomorrow.
Small class sizes (18 to 20 pupils), differentiated lessons, and setting in Mathematics from Year 3, ensure that our girls are appropriately challenged and given the best opportunity to make excellent progress. Historically, a significant number of our girls achieve scholarships every year.
