The Prep School
The Prep School includes all the children who are in Years 3 to 8.
The curriculum in Key Stages 1 to 3 broadly follows the National Curriculum and in addition pupils in Years 6 to 8 prepare to take the ISEB Common Entrance examination. We also prepare pupils for scholarship exams to the senior schools of their choice through our Lyceum programme.
The aim of the curriculum at St. Martin’s Ampleforth is to provide a broad and balanced education for pupils where all are given the opportunity to study a wide range of subjects, thus sharing in the inheritance of a Benedictine tradition in which learning and scholarship are prized.
Through high quality teaching and resources, we aim to provide our pupil with an inspiring experience and to encourage in them a love of life-long independent learning. Cultural activity, which includes sport, music, art and drama, is an important part of the curriculum and all students have extensive opportunities to participate.
St. Martin’s Ampleforth School has a range of extra-curricular activities which take place during the school day and after school. There is a wide variety of extra-curricular activities including golf, fencing, tennis, football, art club, science club, carpentry, shooting etc.
