Pupils enter the Prep school either directly from our Pre-Prep or from another school. We are non-selective although new pupils will sit a short test to ensure that Conifers is the right setting for them.
Once children join this part of the school, the day increases in length to accommodate more sport, regular sports fixtures, festivals and enrichment subjects such as Mandarin. This is in addition to the core subjects, music, DT, art and outdoor learning that they have enjoyed since the Pre-prep and Early Years. In Form III the children are taught the core subjects by their Form Tutor and by subject specialists from Form IV and above.
Pupils continue with their academic studies working towards Common Entrance at either 11+ or 13+, or specific senior school entrance exams.
