Senior Preparatory

Welcome to the Terra Nova Senior Prep School – a unique experience for pupils aged 9-13, where they embark on a more independent learning journey as they develop into young adults.

In our brand new 21st Century Science lab and language-rich classrooms, pupils are taught by our team of dedicated subjects specialists who provide a rich, engaging and bespoke curriculum to inspire curious minds and meet their individual needs. Pupils are encouraged to develop an awareness of their own learning and are frequently challenged, in preparation for the rigour of Year 9 and beyond.

The senior school is a hive of activity where pupils are motivated to aim high, embrace challenge and learn from mistakes. Pastoral care remains a priority but emphasis is placed on senior pupils taking ownership for how they treat others and having a sense of pride in what they do. These are achieved through numerous opportunities for all pupils to lead, take responsibility and care for each other.
