Prep Admissions ( 4-10 )

We understand that choosing the right Prep School and getting the right support for your child is a big decision and we aim to make the admissions process as simple and smooth as possible for our prospective families. Our dedicated Admissions Team are here to ensure you have  a seamless journey whether your child is starting school for the first time or joining us in Prep 1- Prep 6.

Our curriculum is designed to enable children to journey confidently on the road to becoming effective learners for life.

Reception class pupils follow Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage while from Prep 1 to Prep 6 National Curriculum content is used as a basis for Teaching and Learning.

Throughout, children are exposed to opportunities that enhance their learning in ways not always found in other schools.  A considerable amount of individual attention is provided through small class sizes and a high teacher-to-pupil ratio. Every class has access to a classroom assistant enabling 1:1 or small group support.

As children progress through Prep School, they get more involved with Senior School and attend lessons including Science, Languages and the Arts, They also participate in Sport and take advantage of all that the Senior School has to offer.
