Promoting independence at BPS

24th November 2020

Throughout their education at BPS we encourage our girls to be independent learners, from their time when they join Bowdon Prep in the Early Years through to Year 6. We work with the girls to help them develop the relevant skills, both academic and social, which they build on throughout their prep school life. We challenge them to believe in themselves, be risk takers, to have a go but be prepared  to continue to persevere if they get it wrong.

We also offer all of our Year 6 pupils leadership roles within the school, be this as Sport or Performing Arts Captains, the Eco Committee or Library monitors for example. We support them through Leadership lessons, enabling them to take responsibility for one specific area and come up with ideas on how to promote this position within the school and make a difference to our whole community.
