Art, music, and design and technology are important parts of life in Pre-Prep. Our creative curriculum allows us to approach all subjects in a creative way, but we also have dedicated sessions in the timetable.
We have a purpose-built music building at Somerhill and children from Reception have class music lessons with a specialist teacher each week. There is also a performance room for events, and children can take part in music soirees from Year 2. We find this experience is brilliant for creating confidence and building emotional resilience in our younger children.
We encourage pupils to take up individual instruments from Year 2. Drama productions include a play in Year 2 and Christmas productions in the Mansion Hall from Pre-School upwards.
