Carlswald House Preparatory School is a proud member of Cambridge Assessment International Education – A Cambridge International School
CHP is a Values-Based School and we continually strive to create a strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement and develops social and relationship skills, focusing on the development of internationally accepted values such as Trust, Honesty, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility.
Our Senior Preparatory incorporates Grades Four to Seven and is the beginning of a more formalised education. The Grade Four children are introduced to cycle tests and assessment marks for the first time.
Our programme is holistic and covers a wide range of subjects incl; Mathematics, English, isiZulu, Afrikaans, Science, Social Science (History and Geography), Global Perspectives, Physical Education, Music, Art and ICT (Information, Communication Technology).
The Grade Four children learn both additional languages; Afrikaans and isiZulu, while the Grade Five to Seven children choose one language to specialise in. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum and iPads are available for children to use at school. iPads are used in the classrooms for research, creating animated movies, flipped classroom activities and reinforcing other important skills.
Although subjects are taught separately, our curriculum is integrated, with particular emphasis on critical-thinking and problem-solving. Our teachers are continually trained in cutting-edge teaching techniques and our curriculum is revised regularly, ensuring that it is relevant at all times.
