Fairfield Prep secures NACE Challenge Award
Fairfield Prep School is delighted to have succeeded for a second time in being awarded with the NACE (National Association for Able Children in Education) Challenge Award. This is given in recognition of school-wide commitment to high-quality provision for more able learners, within the context of challenge for all.
An assessor from NACE commented: “’Fairfield’s aim [is] ‘to ignite the spark that inspires continued learning outside the classroom’ so that ‘when a child leaves Fairfield … they do so as happy, confident and fully independent learners.’ [This] is reflected throughout the school in the quality of leadership, … the ethos of shared responsibility, and the focus on teaching to the top and meeting the individual needs of each pupil.”
Throughout the assessment NACE observed that the depth and breadth of Fairfield’s curriculum is reflected in each child’s impressive level of knowledge and understanding. Pupils at Fairfield speak confidently but with humility about their abilities, strengths, and knowledge, whether academic, sporting, musical or artistic.
Headmaster, Andrew Earnshaw remarked, “I am incredibly proud that we have attained the NACE Award for a second time, evidencing a sustained commitment from Fairfield’s academic and leadership team to support and develop our more able learners. Achieving this award demonstrates our whole-school commitment to each pupil, to support them in reaching their full potential and ensuring they are well prepared for their onward journey to senior school.”
Congratulations, Fairfield Prep School!
