The Lower School offers a prep school education for children between the ages of 7-9. The curriculum provides our pupils with the skills and experiences that will form the foundation for their future learning, and begin the process of helping each child to achieve his or her full potential. We recognise the importance of each child being happy and successful in school. To this end, we place great emphasis on the pastoral care, ensuring that each child is secure and confident both in and out of the classroom. We recognise too that each child is an individual, with their own unique talents and personality. We get to know each one as an individual, nurturing their strengths and helping to develop other areas to allow them to reach their full potential.
The Lower School is housed in the ground floor of the Tom Davies building. During the last few years there has been an extensive programme of refurbishment to ensure that all classrooms are equipped for modern teaching, including interactive whiteboards and digital visualisers. The Lower School also has access to the ICT suites, a well-stocked library, the theatre, the music school, Art and Design & Technology classrooms and the extensive sports facilities.
