The Pre-Prep is set within a wonderful purpose built building called The Oval, which was designed in the shape of a rugby ball as a nod to the school’s rich sporting heritage.
Set around an open-air courtyard with playful seating areas, the light and spacious classrooms are spread across two floors and are all equipped with a plethora of resources for each age range, as well as interactive smart boards.
Our Pre-Nursery classes operate in an open-plan double classroom which opens up onto a dedicated outdoor playground for our youngest pupils. The classroom is a haven of different play areas, which encourages learning through play in many different ways. As children move up through the Pre-Prep and their days become more structured, we increasingly offer more structure to the classroom set-up.
Within The Oval we have our own Assembly Hall, music and music practice rooms, a soft play room, a computer suite, an enclosed Nursery playground, a KS1 playground (complete with a slide straight from the upstairs classrooms), a bike track, a splash pool and a garden area for growing plants.
In addition to our own inspiring facilities, we also have access to shared resources with the Prep School, such as the 25m pool, indoor sports hall and school dining room. There are several playing fields for sports use and on-site we also have access to an incredible Outdoor Education Camp, too.
