Our Staff

Meet our teachers

All teachers at Prospect House School share one firm belief: nurturing individuality is the most empathetic and effective way of teaching children to fly.

To ensure personal attention, the ratio of staff to pupils is high. Without exception our teachers are highly qualified and ably supported by our carefully chosen team of teaching assistants.

We have an extensive range of specialist teachers covering maths, English, computing, French, music, physical education, art/design technology and Latin.

Other highly-trained staff are available to identify and support children who may display specific learning needs. If appropriate, specialist staff such as speech therapists are also available to work with pupils.

We remain focused on giving every pupil the best chance of fulfilling their ability.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Activities for your child

Variety and new adventures are the life-blood of curiosity and enthusiasm (which we deem to be fundamental to personal and academic development).

Aside from being fun and exciting, extra-curricular activities can work wonders in building confidence. A child who once struggled with maths may well excel once they discover they’re a dab hand at abseiling.

Prospect House School offers a wide spectrum of activities which encourage self-expression and the development of talents outside the classroom. This also helps build relationships by allowing us to interact with our pupils in different environments.

Music

Visiting music teachers offer individual instrumental tuition on a variety of instruments. We have a school orchestra, chamber choir and senior and junior choirs, as well as a number of ensembles.

Drama and performance

All children act in assemblies, school plays, musical productions and concerts throughout the year. Children in Years 1 to 6 enjoy drama lessons and
our high-quality staging, lighting, sound and props give every production a professional feel.

Clubs

Prospect offers a host of after-school clubs

Extra-curricular activities and clubs outside the school timetable

These include coding, judo, golf, drama, art, animation, Spanish, hockey, netball, cookery, LAMDA dramatic arts, yoga, calligraphy, photography, football, touch typing and sport.

Sports

A wealth of sporting opportunities

Physical activity promotes wellbeing, so we offer a busy sports programme. This includes football, netball, hockey, running, cross country, tennis, athletics, cricket, rounders, swimming, dance and gymnastics.

Parents' Role

Communication is key to identifying individual needs

We actively encourage a close relationship between parents and all staff.

Sharing information gives us a deeper insight into the wellbeing and progress of each child, and our open-door policy means we’re readily available to discuss any concerns that arise.

Parents are encouraged to support their child’s learning and the school gives guidance on how best this can be achieved.

Parents are invited to regular parents’ evenings and open mornings, sports days, concerts, class assemblies and theatrical productions. They can also join in their child’s class to share special events or celebrate a religious festival.

It is thanks to our parents’ association, PROFS, that we have a friendly, close-knit and supportive community extending a warm welcome to all.
