In Pre-prep developing a lifelong love of learning and a thirst for knowledge in our girls and boys is our ultimate goal.

We offer a broad and balanced academic experience based on the Curriculum for Excellence. However, at Cargilfield we believe the basics still matter and so retain a focus on Literacy and Numeracy at this stage. The majority of the rest of the curriculum is delivered through a programme of carefully chosen topics.

Specialist teaching is provided in PE, Music, French, Scottish County Dancing and, from Primary 3, Art. Small classes and a flexible approach to learning and teaching ensures that individual needs and different learning styles are catered for which guarantees girls and boys the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
