Welcome from the Head
We aim to equip each boy with the cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills necessary for a happy and confident start to their school careers.
The Pre-Preparatory School offers a creative and stimulating learning environment which encourages development of the individual child. We aim to equip each boy with the cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills necessary for a happy and confident start to their school careers trusting that they may become accomplished, successful, lifelong learners. The boys encounter the world with awe and anticipation and a sense of reverence for knowledge. Respect for others and the environment is fostered.
The boys are guided towards a tolerance of time and a quietness in which careful consideration is encouraged.
It is an exciting space not closely connected to correctness but rather connected to thoughtfulness. Sharing of ideas and cooperation promotes a culture of understanding and appreciation where all thoughts are valued, all encounters seen as opportunities to learn.
