We have a deep commitment to developing the whole child and maintaining a balanced curriculum where children’s personal development is absolutely prioritised. 

‘‘Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.’’

Benjamin Franklin

We provide an extensive and balanced curriculum which is vital for stimulating young, enquiring minds and which gives equal opportunity for the musician, artist or sportsman to become as valued as a linguist or scientist.

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Maimonides

Our Prep curriculum evolves each year to reflect the changing developmental needs of our pupils. We utilise the key skills of discovery, application and communication to explore each subject area and provide opportunities for children to practice problem solving and collaborative learning.

“Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them.’’

William Arthur Ward

We place a strong emphasis on enriching our curriculum to extend the academic, artistic and physical elements of learning. Extracurricular opportunities are offered at many levels and help our pupils to extend their learning and acquire essential life and people skills which cannot be acquired from the classroom environment alone.

“Let's go invent tomorrow instead of worrying about what happened yesterday.’’

Steve Jobs

In our celebrated Design Technology department, inventive ideas are nurtured and pupils relish finding solutions to challenging design projects. With careful support, our children gain confidence in making their ideas a reality.

“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings''.

William Blake

We have excellent experience in guiding and supporting pupils through their transition to senior school. By helping them develop confidence, self-awareness and empathy, they leave us as well-rounded and resilient children prepared for the journey ahead.

Newland House has always been a school in which the pastoral care of children is of the utmost importance and this experience will serve us particularly well this term.

Home Learning

When the Government announced that there would be an indefinite school site closure in the penultimate week of last term, we were able to respond with the launch our Home Learning Programme within a matter of a few days, owing to our existing and versatile infrastructure and the unique approach to education which is shared by everyone at the school.

Through our Home Learning Programme helped to ensure that children and families had a sense of routine, maintain familiarity with school life and provided a medium for social interaction with classmates and teachers and these factors were vitally important for the children’s emotional and education stability during the lockdown.
