Pre-Prep: Years 1 and 2

The boys arrive with us in the Pre-Prep excited and ready to learn after a fantastic start to their educational journey in the Early Years. We encourage boys to develop and build upon their abilities in all areas of school life and take pride in their achievements.

Within the structured school day boys quickly gain independence, self-confidence and an enthusiasm for learning. Emphasis is placed on trying one’s best, being kind and tolerant of others and their points of view. Our innovative and exciting curriculum encourages the boys to develop all the characteristics needed for effective learning.

The Pre-Prep has its own building but benefits from access to the other fabulous facilities of the main site in Alleyn Park. We have approximately 150 pupils aged between 5 and 7 years old and each year group is divided into 4 classes of up to 20 pupils.

We work hard to ensure that the nurturing, positive and friendly environment in the Pre-Prep allows all our pupils to flourish under the supportive guidance of their class teacher and classroom assistant. We aim to create confident pupils with a firm sense of belonging and well-being, whilst enabling them to make the smooth transition to the Lower School.
