The aim of Auckland College Prep School is to effectively prepare boys and girls from the age of 4 to 11 years for entry into secondary education and beyond. We build on the excellent foundations laid in the Pre Prep, so there is a strong continuity in their educational experience, and the warm relationships fostered between staff and pupils supports and encourage our pupils to fulfil their potential.
Our Prep School offers a unique educational and childcare programme which provides an outstanding independent education alongside inclusive 51 weeks childcare 7.30am to 6.00pm. The cost of our childcare during term time and holidays is included within the school fees, making it excellent value for parents. Providing this all inclusive childcare gives our children continuity of care, and to parents it gives reassurance throughout the year.
We have smaller classes than the state sector and pupils are supported by a teacher and a dedicated team of teaching assistants who work across the school. Within our small classes all of our children can benefit from plenty of individual attention.
The Auckland Curriculum, developed alongside the National Curriculum, gives the students the knowledge, skills and understanding of all English and Mathematics required to succeed in life, whilst also studying a wide range of topics across all subjects through interesting and engaging lessons which will excite the children and lead them to becoming fantastic learners throughout their lives.
