Prep 1

At The Glasgow Academy, we believe 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.

Here at TGA Newlands, our Prep 1 pupils benefit from a large classroom which allows children to enjoy a wide variety of learning experiences. We have access to a large green space at our wonderful new Nursery which enables us to take our children's learning outside in a safe and secure environment.

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 gives 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!
