St. Christopher's The Hall School
Independent Preparatory School for Boys and Girls 3-11 in Beckenham

The Lower School (Reception to Year 2) Print E-mail

The children from Reception age not only cover the National Curriculum subject areas, but work to a level beyond its statutory requirements as they progress towards competitive entry in Year 6. Monitoring takes place at the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) prior to the transfer into the Prep School at Year 3.

Subjects are taught by fully qualified class teachers who are also responsible for overall pastoral care. Subjects such as Drama, French, I.C.T., Music and P.E./Games are included in the curriculum and taught by specialist teachers.

The development of reading is considered a most important discipline. We believe that children who enjoy reading are equipped for lifelong learning. St. Christopher’s aims to foster this belief in every child. From Reception to Year 2, the children progress both academically and socially in a warm and friendly environment. They become confident in their own abilities and develop into individuals in their own right.
