Sport

At Tormead Prep we encourage every girl to become fully involved in our Sports Programme and our aim is to offer each girl opportunities to become actively involved in, and to enjoy, as wide a range of sports as possible during her time with us.


Cross-curricular Enrichment Activities

Within the curriculum, in their year groups, the girls will learn more about a topic or subject through visits to museums or history days.

  • Cross-curricular enrichment activities
    • Winchester Science Museum
    • Tate Modern
    • Imperial War Museum
    • Pond dipping at Painshill Park
    • A visit to a local garden centre
    • Wisley Gardens

Creative Curriculum Days

On these days, the girls come off timetable to learn more about a topic or celebration. Recent days have encouraged the girls to explore Chinese New Year and linked to our Book Week, an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ afternoon.

Each year, during Inquisitor week, the girls explore and develop their understanding of STEAM subjects through a week of activities linked to science, technology, engineering, arts and maths.

These days complement and strengthen our High Performance Learning approach to the teaching and delivering of the curriculum where growth mindset skills taught in class can be applied to everyday situations and experiences.

Outdoor Learning

Girls are encouraged to take a walk on the wild side where our outdoor learning classroom offers the girls unique experiences. Here there will be opportunities to go bug hunting, build shelters, learn bush craft skills and gain an appreciation of nature.

With an emphasis on playful, meaningful activities which encourage and teach the girls to become risk aware and to collaborate to overcome a challenges.

Beacon Programme

The Beacon programme encourages the girls to complete self-directed learning through researching and presenting information on a topic that interests them, beyond (or as an extension to) the subjects that they are taught in class.

The skills the girls use as they learn more about their chosen subject is a direct link to the critical thinking and the High Performance Learning skills that are embedded in our curriculum, enabling them to apply their knowledge and understanding at a deeper level.
