Lower Prep

 

Lower Prep provides an inspirational environment where boys receive outstanding education and care at the very beginning of their school life. We accept boys from four years old in the term of their fifth birthday.

Our Lower Prep lessons are dynamic and stimulating.  Wherever possible they are practical and we have a range of teaching resources to ensure an exciting timetable for all the boys.

Music, Drama, French and PE are taught by specialist subject teachers throughout the Lower Prep years, starting therefore in Reception, and we work in conjunction with our Study Centre where it is beneficial for the pupil.

We have newly built Lower Prep classrooms along with an outdoor learning environment to ensure our children get the very best start in their education.

The school day is from 8:30am to 4pm with an optional after school club until 5pm. Break times are supervised appropriately and the boys can play on the adventure playground, play football, team games or bring their own games in to school.

We take part in a whole school assembly every week.

Lower Prep pupils enjoy a range of school trips and we have a vast number of Extra Curricular clubs for the boys to try. There is sport and swimming with other local schools.

Forest School is taught from Reception to Year 3 by trained Forest School staff.

We offer a 6+ Academic Scholarship for boys as they enter Year 3.  More information is available on our Scholarships and Bursaries page.

We look forward to welcoming you to Lower Prep and giving you a tour of our wonderful facilities. Please come to our next Open Morning or book a tour at another time with our Admissions Registrar. We look forward to seeing you!
