Why small class sizes work

What makes Wandsworth Prep School so successful, is our small class sizes; every child is challenged to succeed. With class sizes no larger than 18, supported by a class teacher and teaching assistant, we are able to treat every child as an individual with high levels of support so that children quickly build strong literacy and numeracy skills.

Pupils Display Great Sportsmanship in Athletics
 
Parents Bring Gardening Project to Life

Years 1 to 4 had a brilliant Athletics fixture at Tooting Bec Common this week. Pupils rotated around three stations and competed against Eveline Day School in their year groups. They sprinted over 50m, hurdled, threw vortexes and competed in long jump. It was wonderful to see the pupils apply a range of athletics skills in a competitive environment. 

Year 1's Science and Geography based project during the Spring Term - which focussed on Palu Nati island in Indonesia, the island environment, its wild life and pollution problem - provided the context for Year 1's current gardening project.  With the support of two green-thumbed parents in the Wandsworth Prep family (Valentina's mummy, Karin, and Jack's mummy, Caroline), we now have a beautiful herb garden and sunflower seedlings.

As you know, Wandsworth Prep School is part of Bellevue Education. Earlier this year, Mark Malley, the group’s CEO, shared his Education Manifesto.

On Wednesday, Year 1 and 2 visited the Tate Modern Museum as part of their enquiry led project about Art: Past and Future.

Pupils went to the gallery as researchers to gather information to help them better understand how artists approach creating and developing art. They were also asked to think about the differences in artwork at the Tate Modern compared to the National Gallery. Before their visit, the pupils thought about what they wanted to find out from the artists.
