The Preparatory School is an inclusive community that values all its pupils. We encourage all children and provide them with appropriate challenges and support. Our main objective is to enable each child to maximise their potential and to strive for excellence in everything they do.

All children are assessed on entry and our small class sizes mean that the pupil to teacher ratios allows teachers to actively differentiate and support both those children who need consolidation and those who need extending. In addition, wherever possible, support staff work in the classroom alongside the teacher to support children identified who may need support within the lessons. Children may also be withdrawn from class for one to one or small group work with the support staff.

We work very closely with parents and encourage them to collaborate with us in their child’s education. The school has well established links with educational psychologists, speech therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and other such professionals whom we consult as and when it is required.
