Life in the Pre-Prep

Our vibrant Pre-Prep offers an exceptional education in a safe, secure, colourful and nurturing environment.

The joy of learning and the excitement of childhood exploration are celebrated in a warm, caring, family atmosphere with a great emphasis placed on every child wanting to come to school each day. We view your child’s education as a partnership and our experienced teachers and teaching assistants are always on hand for the children and parents.

We want every child to feel that they belong here and the school’s motto ‘Non Sibi’ encourages values of courtesy, kindness and selflessness which combine to create a very special atmosphere. Our dedicated team of teachers are passionate about providing the best for every child and we pride ourselves on the strength of relationships that exist between pupils, teachers and parents. We welcome open communications and a strong partnership with our families, all of whom are invited to attend a wide variety of events including informal tea concerts, dramatic productions, sports events, assemblies and learning showcases. Through small form groups led by experienced teachers, we offer time for children to be children, with the knowledge that they have someone to turn to whenever they need help or guidance. A strong focus on positive relationships and a commitment to developing reflective mindsets ensures that children feel able to share any concerns with the people around them. The children at Blundell’s Pre-Prep are happy children and that shines through in everything that they do.

Our Pre-Prep allows every child the freedom, space and countless opportunities to grow in confidence and discover their talents as they take their all-important first steps into school life. I would be delighted to welcome you to visit and tour so you can really see why our Pre-Prep is so special.
