We aim to make learning an exciting adventure, full of opportunities for personal development, achievement and enjoyment. We want to provide an education for life, giving our students the knowledge, skills and values they need to create their own successes as thoughtful and confident individuals in the world beyond.
Our dynamic and inspirational staff offer over 30 different clubs each term, catering to a wide range of interests. The variety and quality of the club provision encourages the learning and development of new skills, with club planning taking each child’s needs into consideration. Children build positive relationships with staff and often develop friendships with children in other year groups.
Examples of these clubs: Mini Explorers, Dance, Construction, Drama, Chess, Animation, Coding, STEAM and book club to name a few.
Alongside our staff led clubs we also run a programme of Activities provided by external, specialist instructors and teachers. These allow pupils to extend their skills, making use of Prospect House’s exceptional facilities and the depth of knowledge from the expert leaders.
Examples of these activities include: MTech, Fencing, Judo, Lamda, Crossfit to name a few.
Music, Speech and Drama and all of the allied performance skills are hugely important to us at Prospect House. This is just as it ought to be.
Presenting and public speaking is a life skill and the children have many opportunities to shine. This starts in Nursery as it is important to develop from an early age and we continue to provide platforms for the children to participate in productions, assemblies, music concerts, ensembles, poetry recitals and debates. This allows children to stand before other people, overcome their nerves and speak with confidence and purpose.
It is not all about being at the front and having the leading role – this isn’t for everyone – it’s all about having a go, finding your voice and being part of a team.
Each summer term, all children in the Upper School go on a school away journey to a residential centre with their year group.
These residentials are an important part of the curriculum of Prospect House and the children undertake a variety of new activities and team-building challenges, such as abseiling, raft-building and orienteering.
Our wonderful staff lead by example and each subsequent journey is designed as a progression from the previous one in terms of distance away and activities involved.
Year 3 – 2 nights away at Flatford Mill, Suffolk
Year 4 – 3 nights away at Hindleap Warren, Sussex
Year 5 – 4 nights away on the Isle of Wight, Kingswood
Year 6 – 5 nights away at Rockley Point, Poole
Trips, outings, workshops and visiting performers enhance and embed curriculum learning. Our pupils are often out and about in London, visiting the museums, galleries, and historical sites on our doorstep, including regular trips to Shakespeare’s Globe. While learning from home, Year 6 pupils were treated to a virtual Q&A with author Anthony Horowitz.
