Our Curriculum

Our diverse curriculum is supported by a wide variety of practical activities and experiential learning to help pupils get the most out of their independent education. Pupils at our Shrewsbury primary school are encouraged to work together, learn from each other and are inspired by teachers who ignite their lessons with excitement. 

Supporting and teaching each child as the individual that they are, Prestfelde teachers encourage pupils to have a love of learning, naturally leading to an aspiration of academic excellence. Understanding each child's abilities, interests and needs, Prestfelde's flexible teaching approach, aided by excellent facilities, technology, learning resources and support, optimises learning potential. Find out more about the benefits of our broad and fulfilling curriculum today.
