The Preparatory Years (Prep 1 to Prep 6)

Laying a robust academic foundation and introducing a life-long love of learning

Malvern College Hong Kong offers an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum that encourages pupils to make connections between local and global issues in a real-world context. Learning takes place by integrating subject areas through a holistic approach that builds both a strong academic foundation and a love of learning.

Relevant content set in meaningful context provides the best environment for acquiring knowledge, skills and understanding, allowing primary pupils to construct and connect their knowledge across different subject groups. They also learn important self-management skills, taking ownership for their learning, and to develop their own character while appreciating the diversity of others.

 

Acquiring knowledge

Primary pupils construct and connect their knowledge across different subject groups. They also learn important self-management skills, taking ownership for their learning, and developing their own character while appreciating the diversity of others.

Literacy and mathematics continuum

Our literacy and mathematics continuum across the primary years is based on British and international standards, inclusively targeting each of our pupils through a personalized approach to their foundational learning.

 

Our subject areas encompass:

  • Language (English and daily Chinese)
  • Social Studies (people, societies and their place in relation to each other and the environment)
  • Mathematics (data handling, measurement, shape and space, patterns and functions, numbers) Arts: Visual and Performing Arts (Music, Drama and Dance)
  • Science (using an experimental and integrated approach)
  • Physical Health and Social Education (character and social development, physical education and healthy living)
 

Collaborative project

In the final year of the Perp section, our pupils take part in a collaborative project where they synthesise their acquired knowledge, conceptual understanding and skills. Prep 6 pupils share their learning journey and conclusions with the Malvern community.

 

Assessment

Throughout the primary years, our pupils are assessed and evaluated against international standards using formative and summative means and employing self, peer and teacher assessment tools.
