Sherborne Prep is a very special place, and I am enormously proud to be leading a team of dedicated professionals whose raison d'etre is to provide every opportunity for your child to flourish. Whatever your child's passion might be, we work to nurture that curiosity, to stretch him or her to develop and refine a breadth of skills, and to engender in your child a certain knowledge that learning is FUN.
The result is a Pre-Prep bubbling with happy enthusiasm, and the perfect environment for growth and development.
In the earlier years of the Nursery so much is learnt through play, and the children absorb a great deal from the games we play , whether it be number songs and rhymes or word games, or the development of social skills through role play and finding out about the world around them.
As your child progresses through Reception and beyond, the learning process becomes gradually more formalised, but I can assure you that there is just as much laughter from the children in Year 2 as there is from the younger ones! A great Pre-Prep education is about so much more than building firm academic foundations - we aim to give every child the confidence and inquisitiveness to try something new and to embrace all opportunities.
Our small class sizes ensure that we can extend each child according to their individual level, in numeracy or literacy, in music, drama, sport, art, or any other area of school life.
Happiness is... Sherborne Pre-Prep. I do hope you will come and visit us to see just how much fun a great education can be for your child.
Thank goodness that the Prep, with all its foibles and idiosyncracies remains an island of calm and good sense in an uncertain world - or so we like to believe...
