Prep School is an inspiring environment for boys who are quickly maturing and eager to express opinions. We aim to encourage curiosity and to set our boys on the path toward being lifelong learners with inquisitive, objective minds. Equally, we instill the values of an ethical person; a young gentleman - an Aitchisonian.

Subjects offered at Prep School include: Cambridge core studies in English, Mathematics, Science, added to which are the compulsory studies of Urdu, Islamyiat and Pakistan Studies (History and Geography), Art, and choices of classical and modern languages: Arabic, Persian, Mandarin, German and French. Computer studies is integrated into all three core subjects. 

We have a purpose built academic block with spacious classrooms, covered walkways, and four well-equipped Science Labs and Prep Room. Three state of the art Computer Studies labs have multimedia and interactive smart boards -as all classrooms offer digital projection facilities. In addition to the Syed Babar Ali Library, Prep School has its own library which is enjoyed by pupils on daily basis. A modern Tuck Shop provides fresh food items during two daily breaks from class. 

In addition to formative testing or progression testing, the Prep School conducts major Examinations each calendar year; Half Yearly and Annual. All Prep School curriculum and assessment details may be found on our Prep portal.

A variety of Co-curricular activities such as Debates (English & Urdu), Recitation (English & Urdu), Qira`t, Quiz competition, Essay writing (English & Urdu), Hand writing (English & Urdu) are held amongst Houses on a regular basis. In addition to this all boys are encouraged to join at least two clubs/societies from the Dramatic Club, Computer Society, Mathematics Society, Quiz Society, Chess Society, Debating Society, Music Society, Nature Club, French Club, Art & Photo Club and Aero-Modeling Club.

With the exception of swimming, which is compulsory for all boys, at least two other games must be played. Sport is compulsory in weekly PE lessons. 

Prep School boys organize and conduct Annual Inter-School competitions for English Debates, Urdu Debates and General Knowledge Quiz. The Young writers of Prep School publish a School Magazine by the name of “PREPPY” every year. They write, edit and compose articles in English, Urdu and French for this prestigious publication under the guidance of staff advisors. To enhance the aesthetic sense and artistic values boys take part in an Annual Art Competition for publication of a Wall Calendar each year. Best works of arts are selected and published and over the years it has become a signature sign of Aitchison College. Our boys produce an English Play every year. They manage the adaptation, sets, lights and sound and direction –and of course acting.

Prep School is broad experience in the vital years of development before Senior schooling and Cambridge IGCSE.
