HIGH EXPECTATIONS OF PUPIL PROGRESS
Gidea Park Prep has high expectations of every pupil. As a broadly non-selective school we believe that children of all abilities can make excellent progress if they are happy and receive excellent teaching that caters for their individual needs.
Many of our Year 6 pupils sit the 11+ Grammar exam and most will sit a competitive test of some sort for entry into their next school. For this reason we start building the foundations for academic success in our Nursery and Reception classes and continues throughout the School. With small classes and expert, experienced teachers, we are able to adapt our teaching and curriculum to fit the needs of all pupils.
Every year, each cohort has gained results in standardised tests which are well above the national average. These excellent results have enabled most of our pupils to achieve their first choice of senior school, many of them to prestigious Independent Schools or Grammar Schools. We have sent children to a variety of highly respected schools, including Colchester Royal Grammar, King Edward’s Grammar, Westcliffe High, City of London, North London Collegiate, St Paul’s Girls’, Brentwood and Bancroft’s.
