Middle School

The move from the pretty Stable Yard up to the Castle building is a rite of passage for children in Prep 3. It marks the beginning of a new chapter in the adventure of Hatherop, and so many new opportunities and challenges await.

The Middle School encompasses Prep 3, 4 and 5. Learning becomes more structured and topics and ideas more complex, but our pupils are ready for the challenge, and the enthusiasm for learning they have developed in Pre-Prep serves them well. The pastoral care of pupils is supported by their form tutor, who often teaches many of the lessons. Pupils also benefit from an increased range of specialist teaching in subjects such as science and computing.

Our teachers ensure that lessons are engaging and inspiring and there is plenty of sport, arts and outdoor activity to develop a wide range of skills, and to ensure the children are enjoying these key developmental years.
