The forms which fall under the Pre-Prep umbrella include Nursery, Pre-Reception, Reception and Years 1 and 2. We don’t have a banner stretched across the entrance to our Pre-Prep buildings saying ‘Where Education Begins’, but we could have – because it’s true. At every stage of school life we are preparing pupils for what comes next. Moving up through the school is seamless because of this preparation and because we all know each other. When the children leave Pre-Prep for the Main School, they are just taking the next, natural step. Their friends are still with them, they know the teachers and they know the site. Going up is something which is eagerly anticipated and ‘Move Up Day’, which takes place in the Summer term, is a hugely enjoyable milestone.
