The Curriculum

The Villa Pre-Prep prioritises the development of the whole child with an ambitious curriculum that places wellbeing, mental health and life skills at the core of teaching and learning.

Games & the Arts

Music, art, drama and dance are embedded in our creative curriculum with additional individual music lessons offered. Sport skills are taught by specialist teachers from two years old, as well as opportunities to do yoga, gymnastics and team sports. Weekly swimming lessons are provided for all children from Reception to Year Two.

Pastoral Care

The Villa prides itself on its renowned pastoral care and development of key life skills such as resilience and risk taking. Children understand that ‘mistakes are great’ and thrive on challenge. The school promotes kindness and teamwork while successfully supporting children through the 7+ process. The individualised care and attention that runs through the heart of the Villa means that happy and confident children share their feelings and emotions, while parents feel supported as part of the wider community.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Our culture of teamwork and support ensures all staff are able to realise the full potential of the child. Management focus on developing a nurturing community with strong partnerships between home and school and an open door policy that promotes good relationships.

Outstanding Characteristics

The Villa prides itself on its forward thinking approach to mental health in the Early Years, developing a culture of support and ensuring that pupils are given the building blocks to be resilient learners for life. Kindness and community underpin our ambitious curriculum, with pupils moving confidently onto their next learning chapter at 7+, having realised their academic potential.
