Boys and girls, whether they enter the school at 7+ or 11+, very quickly feel at home in their new surroundings. The school prides itself on the warm and welcoming atmosphere that is present from a child’s first day. There is a remarkable sense of community, and of pupils and staff working together. Many examples of the collegiate spirit are in evidence throughout each and every day, none more so than the unifying focus of morning Chapel taken by the Prep School Chaplain. The light, modern Chapel of St George provides the perfect setting for pupil worship and assembly. Whilst the school has an Anglican foundation, we welcome children of all denominations, faiths or none.
Children are encouraged to establish, strengthen and value friendships and to support and encourage each other in their endeavours. A well-established house system introduces the fun of lively competition and develops a bond between pupils across the age range. Participation and achievement are recognised and celebrated.
