As the name suggests, Upper Prep is the time when pupils really start to look forward into the future, to foster ambitions, prepare fully and very much enhance their learning journey thus far. Put simply, it is the pinnacle of their time at the Prep school and a time to ready themselves for the next peak.
Children change a lot in themselves between the age of 11 to 13. We believe it is of significant benefit to navigate these changes in an environment that they are familiar with, where they are known as individuals, and where they feel safe, happy and secure.
Being in the upper end of the Prep school also brings greater ‘grown-up’ privileges than for those in the rest of the Prep school. Pupils wear a different uniform to those younger in the school, they have an extended timetable and have a designated space to relax at break times.
Our academic approach, while rigourous, allows freedom to be innovative in the way we teach, provides continuity of education into the Senior school and equips our children with the skills that they can later apply at GCSE, A Level and in the working world. A foundation such as this enables our Upper Preppers to gallantly pave the way towards the next chapter of their learning journeys providing a very natural transition.
One of the greatest benefits of Upper Prep is that it prepares them for the challenges of young adulthood, whilst also allowing them to relish the golden experiences of childhood a moment longer.
