As the name suggests, preparatory schools or prep schools prepare children for the Common Entrance which they need to sit in order to continue their education at a public school.
Prep schools have all the advantages, opportunities and facilities of a public school but in a cosier and more intimate environment. They have an enormous selection of subjects and sports to choose from and extracurricular activities to try.
The classes are small so the students get lots of individual attention.
Children feel at home at prep school. The pastural care is excellent and the atmosphere is warm, welcoming and caring.
