At the age of 7 years the children move into the Prep Department. A new class opens, so we always welcome new pupils to the School at this stage. A number of induction sessions are offered to smooth the transition for both current and prospective pupils.
Prep is an exciting time, the children begin to move around the campus for lessons and benefit from specialist facilities including the ICT Suite, Music Centre, Design Technology Lab, Art Studio and Science Laboratory.
The children are also assigned to one of our Prep Houses at their very own ‘Sorting Day’. There is always a great deal of anticipation on whether they will become a St. George’s or a St. Philip’s boy, or a St. Monica’s or a St. Margaret’s girl! The Houses offer a ‘home from home’ before and after school and parents will come to know the House Staff as much as the children’s Form Tutor and other teaching staff.
