Prep School

Children learn best when their minds are set free to think differently and think beyond textbooks and fact sheets.

We want our pupils to think differently, to discover their talents, to develop confidence and to realise their dreams. Only in an environment where children feel cared for and valued will this happen.

Our Prep school offers a caring and friendly environment where small class sizes allow pupils to grow and develop in surroundings that encourage them to have fun, to play, and to learn creatively. Taught by superbly qualified class teachers for core subjects, the pupils also have access to specialist subject teachers who make the most of exceptional facilities across the campus in which encourage them to develop a love of learning.

The Prep school offers a structured sports programme with matches played against other schools and a high level of coaching across a range of different sports. A choice of after school activities includes Cubs, with the younger pupils joining our bespoke group, the Hedgehogs giving a focus on service, teamwork and hobbies.

Pupils attend Chapel three times a week with an assembly dedicated to celebrating weekly successes across the Prep school. Pupils enjoy delicious, healthy lunches in the Refectory were pupils and staff debate, discuss and laugh together.
