Welcome to the Junior Department of Homefield Preparatory School where we build on the outstanding start that the boys receive in the Early Years Department. Our well-orchestrated curriculum allows for the integration of academic, physical and social skills and we aim to develop independence both in the boys' learning and in their overall school life.
There is a very strong pastoral ethos and we foster a supportive and warm ‘family feeling’. Through our support of many charities we aim to deepen the boys’ insight into the world around them.
All year groups have specialist lessons in Sport, Music, French and Computing with the Year 3 boys having specialist teachers for a greater variety of subjects. Our curriculum aims to capture the boys’ imagination and engage them as active participants in the learning process. There are also a wide variety of extra-curricular clubs and educational trips that support the boys' learning. Many play individual instruments and all of the boys take part in two musical performances each year. In Year 3 the boys join one of the Houses in the school house system and this continues throughout their time at Homefield.
Analysis of SATs tests in Year 2 in 2015 demonstrated that overall standards are very good against national expectation; the proportion of students achieving strongly (top of level 2 and level 3) is very notable, plus there is a good balance of strong achievement across core subject areas.
