Primary education is the first level of compulsory education, with age of entry to preparatory classes (Prep) being five years, and for Year 1, 5 to 6 years of age.

Within each class, all students follow a common curriculum, and each class is taught in the main, by one teacher. Designed to cater for the mental, physical, social and emotional development of children during their critical formative years, the curriculum emphasises the acquisition of basic literacy, numeracy and language skills.
