Finborough has the perfect mix of history and ‘state of the art’. Our classrooms have the period features from its life as Finborough Hall, teamed beautifully with Interactive Whiteboards, Ipads and Chrome Books.
Opportunities for outside learning are vast, and as pupils walk down into the woods to have lessons it is often like a scene from The Famous Five. We believe that all of these features allow pupils to gain the best of both worlds. Whilst they have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the latest technology, they are also taught to understand the importance of Digital Civility.
We are fortunate not to be constrained by the National Curriculum, but we use it as a guide to inform our excellent teaching. Teachers follow interests and topic themes, enjoying educational trips to support their learning.
All Prep School classes enjoy time in the school library every week with Mrs Gould, our resident librarian. The children love to browse the books, and make use of Mrs Gould’s vast knowledge of books to gain a recommendation.
Although our classrooms are separate from the senior school classrooms, Performing Arts lessons take place in the Prep School Music Room, which is located in the Music block in the Senior School.
Prep 6 pupils also have both their Science lessons and language lessons in the Senior School as one of the first steps in their transition into Year 7.
