Here's why...

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! : A beautiful 90-acre campus, surrounded by national parks and stunning coastlines, enables children to develop a curiosity and interest in the natural world around them

SMALL CLASS SIZES AND SPECIALIST TEACHERS : Whether it be sport, languages or science, our pupils have access to specialist teachers who can give a personalised education to ensure they learn in the way that suits them best. This is supported by our excellent Personalised Learning Department, to give extra support if necessary.

And there's more!

EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES : Our extra curricular programme is not only wide-ranging but is also designed to stretch children so that they develop the courage to try new things, improve their skill-levels, enjoy teamwork and find new interests.

FLEXIBILITY : Not being restricted to the National Curriculum allows us to adapt our teaching to ensure that children are stimulated, active and take a genuine interest and responsibility for their work.

SIMPLE TRANSITION : Links with the Senior School are seamless, ensuring transition from Prep to Senior is easy and without the hurdles of entrance testing or SATS.

COMPLETE CARE : An early morning drop-off from 8am, buses from all over the region and flexi-boarding all help to make life easier for busy families.
