The Prep School is divided into three sections:

  • The Early Years' Foundation Stage, comprising the reception classes. The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) graded our Early Years' Foundation Stage ‘outstanding’.
  • Key Stage 1, comprising Prep 1 and Prep 2. Reception and Key Stage 1 together are called the Lower Prep.
  • Key Stage 2, comprising Prep 3, Prep 4, Prep 5 and Prep 6, known as Upper Prep.

Boys are accepted into Reception from the September following their fourth birthday. Boys remain until they are eleven, by which time they are well prepared for the next stage in their education and most transfer to St Columba’s Senior School.
