THE PREPARATORY AND THE
PRE-PREPARATORY SCHOOL
The Prep and Pre-Prep School aims to empower young people
to flourish and have a positive impact on the world.
We consider this to be anchored in the following values:
Ambition: we set our aims high in terms of what we want to
achieve as individuals and as a community, in and out of the
classroom.
Curiosity: a joy for learning, an enquiring mind, underpinned
by sharp skills in analysis, problem solving, creativity and
communication.
Courage: readiness to embrace opportunity and challenge,
step out of our comfort zones, resilience, independence, and
belief in the power of effort.
Community: compassion, social responsibility, global
citizenship, dedication to supporting each other’s flourishing.
Community
The members of the schools’ teaching staff are united by
a caring approach, passion for their subject areas and the
aspiration to be reflective practitioners. In-service training is
strongly encouraged and teachers attend courses, conferences pupils. The Prep building houses twelve classes of up to
