To help our Hodder House pupils transition smoothly from Foundation Stage to Pre-prep, our Skills Based Curriculum is embedded in creative themes.
We engage the children in active learning experiences and some parts of the day retain a Plan/Do/ Review system, similar to Foundation Stage. This approach encourages children to develop critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, self motivation and independence.
Specialist teaching is delivered in French and Art in KS1 and Speech & Drama and individual music lessons are available on request.
We monitor the progress of pupils from age 3 to 7 with ongoing assessment, with summative assessment at the end of each term to ensure that children are performing to the best of their abilities. In both FS and KS1, Hodder House pupils consistently score above national averages in end of year assessments.
