Lockers Park Prep School is boys only and takes children from Year 3 through to Year 8. Our class sizes are small, an average of 14 with a staff:pupil ratio of 1:8 enabling each boy’s individual potential to be reached.
Our recent ISI inspection report described the curriculum as “excellent” commenting on the breadth of subjects covered. A staff of experienced teachers expect and encourage the best from every pupil, and provide all the support that growing boys need.
In Years 3 and 4, boys are taught mostly by their class teacher, supported by some specialist teachers plus a teaching assistant. From Year 5, all lessons are taught by subject specialists.
All boys use the modern specialist facilities we provide, including a dedicated ICT Suite and our excellent Science and Design & Technology block. In Years 7 to 8, the focus is on preparing boys for scholarship, Common Entrance and entry exams to their chosen senior schools.
Dedicated educational support, provided by specialist staff, is available as required and taken up by many boys. We monitor individual progress very carefully through our system of effort grades and feed this back to parents four times a term. In addition, parents receive regular subject reports and are invited to parents’ evenings. We are particularly keen to blend healthy competition with the need to encourage effort, so that each boy achieves his full potential.
