Marlborough House Pre-Prep is a warm and happy place to learn and discover for pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Our children are encouraged to explore and take risks and to become active learners through an exciting and creative curriculum.
With a qualified teacher and teaching assistant in each class, our excellent adult/child ratio enables us to get to know our children very well, allowing work to have the individual focus on which we pride ourselves. All class work is differentiated according to the need of the child so that we can support and extend progress in all areas. Children in Pre-Prep also have specialist teaching for Music, French or Spanish, Games and ICT.
We offer wrap-around care for all pupils from 7.30am - 5.45pm and a range of after school clubs, giving parents the option of flexible times to fit in with work and family commitments.
We like to take care of the whole child, academically, physically and emotionally so that our children are the very best that they can be. Our children and their well-being is at the heart of all that we do. Staff meet weekly to share information to ensure the children are actively enjoying their learning. All the children are allocated a House as they enter Reception which encourages the children to think of themselves as part of a wider team.
Parents are a large part of our Pre-Prep family and we value that partnership. Parents are encouraged to come into classrooms in the morning to settle their children and teachers are always available to discuss any issues on a daily basis.
Encouraging the children to work hard, have good manners and be kind underpins the Pre-Prep approach. In addition, our school values, virtues and ethos are at the core of everything we do, educating characters as well as minds.
Highly effective teaching, including specialist teaching in music and physical education, enables all children in the setting to make rapid progress, particularly in physical, personal, social and emotional development and in acquiring communication and language skills
When education is this good and learning is this inspiring, how could you not choose it for your children?
I didn’t know it was possible to love school as much as our daughter loves MHS. She even asked if she can hold her next birthday party there!
Our child has flourished, both academically and in confidence, since joining MHS.
Having come from London at a school with awful school dinners, our children have loved MHS food and always come home talking about what they’ve eaten that day. School macaroni cheese is a firm favourite with all 3!
Online teaching during lockdown has given us a great insight into what our child experiences at school. It's totally magical and inspiring - and a real positive to come out of all of this.
When can I come back Mummy, I love it so much!
