Our Mission, Ethos and Values

Our mission at the Prep is to help achieve personal growth and success for each and every child within a caring ethos.

This mission becomes reality in the environment of a small, dynamic, family-orientated school, where cultural diversity is acknowledged and valued.

We set great store by pastoral care of the highest order alongside a clear concern for the welfare of your child. We teach the values of openness and mutual respect throughout our School community, in which there is a strong belief in the traditional values of education.

Your child will:

  • Enjoy a well-balanced curriculum – designed to give the best possible opportunities
  • Participate in a wide range of sporting, artistic and musical activities
  • Engage in a stimulating variety of extra curricular pursuits

Together we will:

  • Enable your child to develop talents and an enthusiasm for learning
  • Enable your child to grow into a confident and enthusiastic young person
  • Be ready for the changes and opportunities of further education and life

We benefit from:

  • Specialist subject teaching from an early age
  • A broad, stimulating and challenging education
  • Excellent facilities
  • Fresh food, prepared on-site each day
  • Our own co-education nursery, Little Lyons
