Able, Gifted & Talented

At Avon House Preparatory School we aim to support the abilities, personal qualities and talents of all our pupils. We aim to ensure that all pupils receive an education appropriate to their abilities and provide teaching which makes learning challenging and enjoyable.

Intervention groups outside the classroom are provided for pupils who need extension activities and help to further develop skills to achieve a higher level of the curriculum.

In the Prep Department, pupils have opportunities to compete against other schools in general knowledge, science and maths quizzes.  These are prepared weekly by subject specific groups before an event. Pupils are selected for these teams by inter-house events and recommendations from class teachers.

Those deemed talented in sport represent the School in teams against other schools and our sports co-ordinators encourage these pupils to engage in these activities in clubs outside School and in some cases pupils move on to represent the Borough and beyond.
