“The academics here are really very good, and definitely match up to (and even beat) some of the more known name schools in the area. Add to that the school also offers the 13+ pretesting for those who wish to have it.”

Muddy Stilettos, 2019

Prince’s Mead is an academic school that prides itself on the breadth and depth of its curriculum, the excellence of its teaching staff and its clear focus on equipping pupils with the skills to become life-long independent learners.

All our academic staff are subject specialists, and all are committed to providing well-paced and stimulating lessons that not only cover the appropriate syllabuses but which also inspire a genuine spirit of enquiry. Our outstanding record in 11+ examination success is important but fostering the life of the mind is perhaps even more valuable.

We have also developed an outstanding Learning Support Department whereby all pupils who are deemed to need help and support from the team have sessions to ensure their particular difficulties are addressed.

Every teacher is passionate about what they teach, fostering a love of learning in the children.

In Key Stage 1, subjects are taught primarily by the form teacher. However, specialists take the classes for sport, Digital Learning, Music and Modern Foreign Languages. This continues in Key Stage 2 for Years 3 and 4.

In Years 5 and 6, the children are also taught by specialists for English, Mathematics and Science in order to prepare them for entrance examinations to senior school. The children are placed in ability sets for English and Mathematics.

Year 6 follow the Enterprise initiative, where they are put into teams and have to create a product to sell at the Year 6 Fayre. This develops vital skills for learning, life and work, as well as being able to work as part of a team.
