PREP

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 come to school eager to learn. Each day starts with time for pupils to work and play together. Teaching staff use this time to listen to pupils read, address misconceptions and help pupils to go over prior learning. This routine approach creates a constructive, positive start to the day. Pupils talked about feeling safe and happy here. They enjoy the school’s warm and caring environment. Pupils behave well. They know that they can trust adults to help them sort out any problems. Pupils are confident that adults would deal with any instances of bullying. There have been changes to leadership recently, including a new headteacher. The commitment to providing a high-quality education for pupils remains strong. Leaders have high expectations for every pupil. They meet weekly to talk about how to support each pupil in their learning. Pupils achieve highly. Pupils and staff spoke about the importance of demonstrating the ‘Merlin spirit’, such as having a go at things you might find hard.
