ITN Productions Industry News and IAPS have co-produced ‘Prepping for the Future,’ a news-style programme that explores the important role that preparatory schools play in nurturing young minds and how they can enable children to reach their full potential

‘Prepping for the Future’ looks at the shifting school culture and recent challenges in the education sector, delving into the classrooms and speaking with students and their educators. From teacher development and training, to wellbeing for the staff and their students. 

The film also focuses on the creation of bespoke curriculums, the health and wellbeing of prep school pupils, the extra-curricular activities available and the welfare and training of prep school staff. The news-style programme highlights four exemplary prep schools that reflect a strong sense of community and family.

  • ITN Productions news presenter, Donna Bernard, reports from St Peter’s in Devon, where the diverse teaching environment encourages the strengths of all students and teaches them different ways to reach their full potential.
  • In Somerset, Robin Ross visits Perrott Hill Prep School  to see how the immersive and inclusive teaching experience is propelling students both personally and academically. 
  • Peter Griffin visited the Oratory Preparatory School, in Oxfordshire, to see how their innovative skills-based curriculum really equips pupils to succeed in life.
  • ITN Productions news reporter visited Holme Grange School to see how teachers - and the curriculum - are helping to create well rounded individuals, while equipping them with skills for a successful future.
