Abbotsholme Prep School (Reception - Year 6)

Abbotsholme Prep School - bringing lessons to life

Learning is brought to life in the Prep School through a practical, hands-on approach and where effort and achievement are recognized, celebrated and recorded.

The curriculum is broad and balanced and delivered in small classes by a team of dedicated staff, who are dynamic and innovative in their approach to the development of enquiring young minds. Whilst the school operates within an ethos of high expectation all work is appropriately differentiated according to individual ability and learning styles to ensure that everyone’s potential is maximized.

The children have access to the senior school’s rich and stimulating surroundings during their formative years providing wonderful opportunities for learning.
