Dragon QUEST

On Saturday mornings something exciting transforms the Dragon. As we move with the modern family and shift the academic focus to weekdays only, our Saturday morning programme is evolving to offer a new, bespoke enrichment curriculum.

From farm visits and yoga, to film making and animation, first aid and debating through to astronomy, orienteering and cultural exploration in Oxford, Dragon QUEST provides our children with the opportunity to discover talents, develop new skills and dare to embrace new challenges. The academic and pastoral benefits are plentiful, whilst providing flexibility and choice to meet the diverse and evolving needs of modern Dragon families.

From September 2020, Dragon QUEST has replaced formal Saturday lessons for Years 4 and 5 and this will extend to the whole Prep School from September 2021.

We asked a Young Dragon about their experience so far: ‘Learning is disguised as fun. It doesn’t feel like I’m learning – but I most definitely am.’

Dragon QUEST, open to both day and boarding children, develops Dragon children beyond the classroom, with an increased emphasis on the holistic development of each individual child.
