Prep Introduction

“Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.” - Stephen Hawking

The Prep Department marks the next phase in the children’s learning journey, where the children continue to grow and develop between the ages of 7 and 11 years.  Pupils are encouraged to take greater responsibility at this age, both for their own learning as well as the smooth running of the School through their involvement in School Council, the organisation of fundraising events and positions of responsibility such as Head Boy, Head Girl, House Captains or Nursery Monitors.  Above all we want our pupils to leave the Prep School having reached his or her potential through a developing love of learning that will go beyond what is taught in the classroom.
