Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Pupils are happy to attend school and they feel safe. Teachers work hard to get to know their pupils well. As a result, they know what pupils need to learn and plan lessons for them that are enjoyable and help them to learn well. Teachers give them plenty of support if they find the work a bit difficult. For example, pupils successfully improve their reading through extra reading with a teacher at lunchtime if they need to catch up. Weekly educational visits with their class help pupils to learn more about the world. Teachers plan games and activities during these visits to ensure that pupils develop the school’s five core values of respect, empathy, resilience, honesty and courage. For example, they developed empathy with the meerkats at Peak Wildlife Park. They said they were ‘just like people’. The boating trip developed pupils’ courage. Pupils know that there is always someone to talk to if they are worried, upset or angry. Staff are patient and caring. They know each individual pupil’s needs and know how they can help them to regulate their emotions. Bullying is rare. Pupils say this is because the staff are always around to help.

There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
