The ‘Prep’ part of the school begins in Year 3, when the children move on from Pre-Prep and is a natural point for more children to join the school too. There are usually three classes in each year group from Years 3 to 8 when the majority of pupils will leave us to continue their educational journey at their chosen senior schools.

The Prep school is further divided into two departments: The Juniors (Years 3 to 5) and the Seniors (Years 6 to 8).

Within our school community, we aim to provide a full and rewarding education by cultivating wide interests and individual gifts in a happy, relaxed atmosphere. Whilst academic success is at the heart of what we are trying to achieve through the basic curriculum of the core and foundation subjects of the National Curriculum, it is through the whole school curriculum, which consists of every activity planned by the school that we hope to prepare our pupils in the broadest possible sense. Every aspect of the wide and varied programme we offer will play a part in the overall development of each child.
