Years 3 & 4 – Ages 7 to 9

Children enter the Prep school in Year 3 and the year group comprises two parallel classes. Both classes will be taught the majority of their lessons by their respective Form Tutor but will have specialist teachers for French, Science, Art, IT and Music. This gives pupils the security of working with their Form Tutor alongside opportunities to develop and branch out under the guidance of others.

In Year 4, the year group is introduced to specialist subjects such as Latin. Pupils can then begin to fine-tune their interests.

The year group is streamed based on our assessment of each pupil’s ability. All subjects are taught in these two classes. Both groups cover the same syllabus but one is likely to move at a slightly faster pace than the other. There is, of course, potential for the children to move between these groups at any stage of their remaining years at Milbourne Lodge.
