Lower Prep


It is rare to find such a magical alchemy as in our Lower Prep where shyness and diffidence gradually evolve into confidence and enthusiasm. Our talented teachers offer a warm, nurturing environment where children receive outstanding care at the beginning of their school life. We accept boys - and girls - in the term of their fifth birthday and support them through to the end of Year 4 when they move into Upper Prep as established and valuable members of our school community.
