Preparatory School

At Hedley Park our Preparatory Department caters for children from 4 – 12 years.

It offers a complete primary based curriculum education. Throughout the school the Montessori method of education is used and adapted to help each child reach their full potential.

All classes are small, ensuring a high pupil/staff ratio of approximately 1:12. We have wonderful advanced Montessori materials to compliment the primary curriculum in a concrete way to allow the children to fully absorb and investigate sac subject area.  The children are organised into groups of mixed ages and ability. Children work on their own programme, thus, in areas the child is more capable they are given free reign to flourish and grow and in areas they may feel less confident the child receives individual attention, without the pressure normally attached to group learning.

We offer a broad spectrum of subjects to ensure a rounded education, including

  • Language
  • Mathematics
  • Irish
  • French
  • History
  • Geography
  • Science/Nature
  • Art
  • Music
  • Physical Education

Our children are also encouraged to participate in Tennis, Chess, Ballet, Drama, Yoga, Mandarin and Instrumentation classes.
