Pre-Prep School

Hurst Pre-Prep caters for children from the age of 4 (Reception) to 7 (Year 2), prior to moving up to the Prep School.

For the youngest pupils, our Pre-Prep is the perfect environment: safe, small and self-contained, where the children instantly feel at home.

Each Pre-Prep classroom opens onto a covered outdoor area, with many resources for outdoor learning. The Pre-Prep children also have their own all-weather bespoke playground to provide a stimulating environment for creative imaginative play times, with plenty of space for running, football, basketball, cycling and scooters.

Being part of the college campus allows the Pre-Prep to benefit from specialist support and amazing facilities. Whether that is for regular stimulating lessons and the Woodland School or for larger events such as the Nativity Play, Dance Showcase or Sports Day, our children have access to the best the college can provide.

We work hard to deliver exceptional teaching, a first-class curriculum and excellent pastoral care to instil a love of learning and to provide a secure academic foundation.

We hope you will come to visit our school and find out more about what we can offer your child.
