One only has to meet our children to understand what it is that makes Breaside Preparatory School the unique place that it is.
Our children are:
The Breaside curriculum offers a wide range of academic subjects designed to motivate and challenge every child to be the best that they can be. Using evidenced research and the views of the pupils themselves, teaching and learning is constantly evolving with innovative 'flipped' teaching models successfully running alongside more traditional methods. Our children love to be challenged and through the personalised approach to learning that we have adopted, all of our children can excel and thrive. We are incredibly proud to be accredited with the prestigious NACE Challenge Award and placed within just 1.6% of schools across the UK. Our programme of extra-curricular clubs is hugely popular, with children right the way from Kindergarten to Year Six engaging in instrumental lessons, language learning and creative arts. Such is the variety that if you walk through the school at any given time you could be met with Reception children conversing in Mandarin, Year 6 pupils teaching others the intricacies of Coding, Year 4 avidly engrossed in a Philosophy discussion or Kindergarten practising the gate pose in Yoga.
Academic success is at the heart of a Breaside education. Our children continuously set their sights high and strive to achieve. Their outstanding results speak for themselves, being significantly above national expectations, and our list of leavers destinations grows wider and more distinguished year upon year. No matter what the destination, we are incredibly proud that our children move on to a school that is perfect for them. We have recently been ranked 11th in the Sunday Times Parent Power Top 100 Prep Schools list - a testament to the wonderful hard work of our children and staff.
Fostering independence and resilience is key to our ethos. We actively encourage risk taking and prepare the children for the future through a broad spectrum of experiences both in and out of the classroom. Residential trips this year so far have taken the children 'off grid' at Bushcraft, swinging through the high ropes at PGL in Osmington Bay and to a chateau in Normandy to immerse themselves in French culture. Forest School is a highlight of the children's week and the life skills that they are developing from this are clear to see. Our newly created outdoor gym and trim trail complements the focus on our children's health and well-being and a well developed PSHE programme places a focus on keeping healthy both physically and mentally.
Friendship, security, challenge, FUN! Time and time again these words appear on our annual student survey and can indeed be seen from the second the gates open in the morning. The Breaside buzz is palpable, just ask any of the students, parents or staff. The joy that comes from being part of the Breaside family is immense and underpins the rich learning experience that is on offer. Here students have a voice. They are the ones shaping how and what they learn, striving for excellence and growing into global citizens of the future.
