Glendower Preparatory Schoolupcoming open day (click for details)
Glendower Preparatory School takes pride in its reputation as one of the leading London independent day schools for girls aged 4-11. The school aims to help girls develop a high degree of intellectual curiosity and academic achievement, beyond the expected levels of subject knowledge and skills. We create an environment where we celebrate individuality and personal achievements.
A particular strength of the school is that we offer specialist subject teaching from Reception when music, PE, ICT, Drama and French are taught by staff passionate about their subjects. As the girls move into the Upper School increased subject specialism is offered to include Humanities and Core Curriculum areas. The curriculum is presented using innovative pedagogy and a willingness to embrace the many opportunities that developing technologies can offer. The school is also committed to developing creativity in all its forms and so drama, art and music are all offered to give girls opportunities to develop areas of personal interest or ability.
However, Glendower is about so much more than simply giving girls access to a wide-ranging curriculum. The school places huge value on the hidden curriculum and the soft skills needed to support the girls as they leave us and continue their learning. The girls are encouraged to develop questioning skills, resilience, public speaking, mindfulness, self-confidence and all the other tools that we know are becoming increasingly essential for life in the 21st Century. Our Year 6 leave us as well rounded individuals with an enthusiastic attitude to life ahead.
Girls from Glendower go on to leading day and boarding schools in and around London. They leave the school with a keen sense of their responsibility to the world in which they live, a belief that they can make a difference and the confidence and desire to make things happen.
