Prep Curriculum

Broad and Balanced

Our forward-thinking, knowledge-rich curriculum gives the girls the knowledge and skills required to thrive in modern Britain. The curriculum is designed to ensure girls are prepared to thrive in the Year Six 11+ external entrance examinations for London day and country boarding schools.

The Falcons School for Girls’ curriculum aims to provide pupils with a rich experience in linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, physical and aesthetic and creative education. It ensures that girls acquire speaking, listening, literacy and numeracy skills, and it is designed to provide stimulation and subject matter appropriate for the ages and aptitudes of pupils, including those pupils with special educational needs, ensuring that all pupils have the opportunity to learn and make progress.

The prep curriculum is delivered through lessons in English, Mathematics, Science, IT, History, Geography, Philosophy, Religious Education, P.S.H.E.E., French, Mandarin, Art, Design and Technology, Music, Drama and Physical Education, Dance and Games. In addition, girls in Years Four-Six enjoy lessons in Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

In addition to timetabled lessons, we collapse the curriculum for one-off challenge days. These have included a Climate Change Day and a S.T.E.M. Careers Day.

Fundamental British Values

The prep curriculum at The Falcons School for Girls provides effective preparation of the pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in British society, and actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
