Pre-Prep Life

 The Pre-Prep Day

Our focus is to nurture children’s’ natural curiosity about their surroundings and about learning by encouraging them to be adventurous so they can flourish in an active, outdoor, creative and academic environment. We celebrate everyone’s achievements no matter how large or small.

The Pre-Prep has its own Hall, vast play areas, a woodland school, library, art, music and cookery rooms. There are weekly swimming, gym, games, dance, music and French lessons taught by specialist teachers. Weekly dance lessons are offered from Nursery in Ballet, Tap and Modern Dance. Year 2 children all take part in the English Speaking Board exams. The Pre-Prep has its own choir, bell choir and ukulele group and many children learn an instrument.
