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

Sycamore Hall is a nurturing and caring school. The atmosphere is calm and harmonious. Relationships between staff and pupils are based on respect. Pupils learn about and value differences between people, and they are kind to each other. Leaders have high expectations and ambitions for pupils. They ensure that every pupil knows the basics of reading, writing and mathematics well. As a result, pupils achieve well in these subjects. However, the overall quality of education the school provides is not yet good. Pupils behave well and enjoy coming to school. They say that they feel safe and know that teachers are there for them if they need help. Bullying is rare. When bullying does happen, staff act quickly to sort it out. Parents are hugely supportive and have lots of good things to say about the school. They believe it provides a safe place, where children enjoy learning and achieve well. One parent said, ‘School is like a family, and students learn in a happy homely environment.’ However, leaders know safeguarding policy and staff training need to be brought up to date with the latest requirements. Leaders have not ensured that all of the independent school standards have been met.
