Calvi House, the first stepping-stone in our Destination 13 journey, is a dedicated Pre-Prep space surrounded by stimulating play areas, a woodland garden and natural adventure trail.

It is the perfect start to school life, where confidence is nurtured and new friends are made.

Entering Nursery or Reception is a welcoming experience strengthened by positive home-school partnerships. Early childhood is cherished, with priority given to exploratory self-directed learning rooted in meaningful play. Children are encouraged to express their feelings and ideas verbally, whilst beginning to consider and respect the thoughts and feelings of others.

In Years 1 and 2, initiative, curiosity and risk taking are encouraged as children begin to think for themselves and take greater responsibility for their words and actions. They feel safe to challenge themselves, to try out ideas and learn from mistakes. The children’s learning widens to embrace both core subjects and specialist teaching in French, Music, Digital Learning and PE.
