Independent inspection report

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.

Meet the Head: Sarah Gillam

Headteacher of Maple Walk School since September 2012. Previously a head for seven years at a school in Berkshire.

Who/what inspired you to become a teacher?

It's very simple. It wasn't a 'who', it was really a 'what'. The reality is that I love children and I really wanted to feel like I could make a difference to them and to the start of their education career and that is the nuts and bolts of it.

I had a career break in the world of marketing and I thoroughly enjoyed it but I actually realised very quickly that teaching is a bit of a calling.  

What achievement are you most proud of as Head?

I am really proud when a child comes running into school and says "I love school". That is what it is all about, a child who loves learning and loves their school, is going to do well and be successful.

Since I came here, the thing I am most proud of is the development of a knowledge based curriculum;  this core knowledge is being delivered through an exciting pedagogy.  They are gaining knowledge and understanding of their world and their environment, whilst attending a creative and affordable school.

What does a successful school look like to you?

It is inclusive, creative, enthusiastic and dynamic. It has children with a love of learning and a high level of literacy and numeracy. 

What is the most important quality you want every child to have when they leave your school? And why?

I want them to be confident in themselves and their abilities, be it academic, sport, music or just being a jolly nice person.

I want them to be articulate, have a love of learning and a good work ethic so that whatever school they go to, they understand the importance of the discipline of work. 

Please give 5 words to describe the ethos of your school.

Creative, inspiring, engaging, curiosity and confidence.
