Pre-Prep School in Hampshire

2-7 Years

We provide an inspirational and supportive environment in which every pre-prep school child is nurtured and individually valued.


Our self-contained purpose-built pre-prep school department is next to the main building, allowing easy access to all prep school facilities including the chapel, stables, swimming pool, library, ICT, music, performing arts centre and cookery. With well-qualified professional teachers supported by classroom assistants, our classrooms and corridors are filled with attractive displays that support learning and celebrate achievements.

School Values

Throughout these early years, we balance traditional values of respect, manners and caring for others, while encouraging children to question, to think outside the box and develop a real thirst for knowledge. Children can join us from the age of two, and from three have the flexibility of morning or all-day sessions. From Reception, this increases to a full school day. Small classes enable each child to work at their own speed and capability whilst being extended to ensure they can explore all learning opportunities open to them.

Pre-Prep Activities

Regular activities included in our forest school are nature walks, treasure hunts, nature trails, pond dipping and live natural science lessons where children learn first-hand about the environment they live in - such as bird, plant and tree recognition - all within our stunning 100-acre setting. Meanwhile, our popular After School Club runs until 17.15, with a wide range of fun activities available.

We also believe in an open and trusting relationship in which parents and carers feel part of our school community, can discuss any issues with us quickly and easily, and are always welcome to be part of our events, celebrations, and everyday school life: our door is always open.
