Prep 1

At The Glasgow Academy, we believe that Prep 1 is a unique and exciting year for both children and parents and that a close relationship between school and family is vital. Our children enjoy a fun-packed and immersive experience in a stimulating and bright environment.

We have our own dedicated floor in the Prep Building and a soft-surface outdoor area that is accessible directly from the classrooms, which we can use to take our learning outside. This unique and dedicated area allows us to provide our children and parents with a collaborative environment as we embark on our learning journey together.

Our small class sizes ensure children are given highly-individualised learning and we never lose track of the uniqueness of your child. In our nurturing Prep 1 environment we offer a curriculum with Numeracy and Literacy at its core and specialist lessons in Music, PE and Modern Languages. The experience and know-how of these specialist teachers give the children an additional boost to help nurture a love of healthy activity, music and languages from an early age.

Prep 1 children enjoy exploring and researching a variety of topics such as My City, People Who Help Us and By The Sea. We participate in many trips and outings to extend our knowledge and invite specialist speakers into school to deepen our understanding and further spark our interest.

Do come along and see for yourself: our children would love to meet you!
