Inspiring a love of learning
The Prince Alfred College Prep School provides a caring and supportive environment for boys in Reception to Year 6, where the unique qualities of each boy are nurtured to build a strong educational foundation.
With a focus on academic excellence, co-curricular enhancement and deeply embedded pastoral care, we are guided by our mantra of ‘Work Hard, Be Kind’ to give our boys the best start to their learning journey.
In Reception to Year 6, we focus on developing essential foundational skills in reading, writing, spelling and maths. Our approach gives boys the best start to their learning and a solid base upon which to build. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) builds a lifelong love of learning for our boys through a bespoke, inquiry-based curriculum. This program challenges each of our boys to take responsibility for their learning, think for themselves and make real-world connections in their education.
Our prep boys enjoy a fun, engaging and internationally-minded learning program which allows them to learn the way they like best; by asking questions, investigating and sharing what they have learned. As part of their all-round education, we encourage our boys to use their creativity, curiosity and imagination to develop lifelong communication, research, self-management, social, and thinking skills.
Specialist programs enrich our curriculum and give opportunities for our boys’ to broaden their knowledge, skills, interests and confidence. As well as the core subjects of English and maths, our prep boys explore a range of specialist subjects including art, Chinese, music, PE, robotics, science, and technology.
