Learning at Hurlingham Nursery and Pre-Prep is enriched by outings to a wide variety of venues including the Science Museum, the Golden Hinde, the Royal College of Music, Kew Gardens, Holly Lodge Richmond and Tate Modern. The school benefits greatly from our close proximity to so many wonderful cultural resources.
On these trips the children gain valuable practical experience ranging from den-building, minibeast hunting and map-reading to spending the day as a sailor aboard the Golden Hinde. All of these are tremendously popular with the children who usually vote the most recent outing as ‘the best ever!
We also invite a wide variety of visitors into our school. These include theatre groups, museum outreach workshops, story-tellers, musicians, puppet shows, a mobile planetarium and animal handling groups. This wide variety ensures that even our youngest children are stimulated by wide-ranging experiences without leaving the security of their familiar environment.
At the end of each year our Drama and Music Departments produce an amazing performance involving all the children from the Pre-Preparatory. This is a chance for every child to shine, watched by their parents at the Putney Arts’ Theatre. We also celebrate Christmas with a Christmas Concert at the end of the Autumn term for both the Nursery and the Pre-Preparatory to which parents, grandparents and friends are all invited.
