We are a non-selective school, as we don't believe in pigeon-holing children, but rather that our role is to encourage every child to embrace all the wonderful opportunities on offer, and to discover and develop his or her talents and interests to the full.  We are proud of our reputation in Dorset and throughout the South West as one of the leading independent schools, at the forefront of private education, and truly preparing your children for lifelong learning.  The Prep has a 100% success record at Common Entrance, and on average, over 38% of our pupils each year go on to senior school with a scholarship or award.
