Welcome to Years 1 & 2

Welcome to Year 1 & 2 of Homefield Prep where we build on the outstanding start that the boys receive in our Reception. 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 ICT with Year 3 also having specialist Art lessons. Our curriculum aims to capture the boys’ imagination and engage them as active participants in the learning process. There are a wide variety of enrichment activities and also educational trips that support the boys' learning (for example: Year 1 - Hever Castle, Year 2 - Gatton Park, Year 3 - Hindleap Warren, residential trip). Many boys begin to play individual instruments and all Year 3 boys learn to play the recorder. Our boys take part in two musical performances each year. From the Summer Term of Year 2 the boys join one of the Houses in the school house system and this continues throughout their time at Homefield Prep.
