Prep Life

The Prep Day

We like to go that little bit further to make every day memorable. It’s the big game of hide and seek on a Summer’s evening, a visit to the Headmaster when you’ve achieved something to be proud of (to collect your SUG), the all in game of Court cricket at break time. It’s cooking a favourite meal in the great outdoors, getting your hands dirty in the woods, the chance for every Year 8 pupil to take responsibility and feel recognised.

We work hard to ensure that every child feels included and part of the spirit of School life through our House system which offers regular opportunities for children to participate in sports and activities, earning valuable House points in the process. Belonging to a House is great fun, creating a sense of loyalty and helps children develop the skills and co-operation to work together. The House system also gives all members of Year 8 opportunities for leadership.

Our children have a voice, which they have the confidence to use.   Involvement in School life extends to the School Council where children from every class are represented. The active School Council, chaired by the Head Boy and Head Girl, is an important forum in which children can put forward ideas and suggestions and where collectively they decide which Charities the School will support for that year.
