You will find a welcome, friendly atmosphere in the Pre-Prep.

The ethos of the department is one of caring for others and we follow six Golden Rules to support the way in which we conduct ourselves.  They are:

  • Be Honest
  • Be Kind and Helpful
  • Be Gentle
  • Work Hard
  • Listen
  • Look after property

Pastoral care is very important to us and we pride ourselves in the way we nurture children in our care, both academically and pastorally. Children are closely supervised at all times.

Our main aim is that all children come to school happily so that each child can reach his or her full potential.

Throughout the Pre-Prep a broad range of activities ensures that all children have the opportunity to participate in music, drama, PE, games and creative arts.

There is a creche facility to extend the day to link in with Prep School finishing times.

We promote healthy eating; specific dietary requirements are catered for and fruit snacks and milk are provided during the school day.


Year groups are kept to a preferred number of 18, each with a qualified teacher and a Pre-Prep teaching assistant.

An outstanding nine out of the ten areas under assessment were considered ‘excellent’ by the inspection team from the Independent Schools Inspectorate. The tenth area was considered ‘good’ with the addition that ‘much was excellent’.
