A Forward Thinking Prep School 

At St George's Prep there is no 'one size fits all' approach; we are genuinely inclusive and all of our children are valued as individuals. We truly care for the health and well-being of all of our children, their families, our community and our planet. We pride ourselves on the development of happy, thoughtful, confident, inquisitive, independent and self-assured pupils who possess integrity, who are well equipped for senior school and have a passion to learn, whilst leading a fulfilled life.

When visitors step foot into St George's Prep, they experience an environment and education which knows no bounds! The school is housed in an extraordinary Grade II listed building with so many unique and historical artefacts. The old is contrasted dramatically with the new - new ways of teaching, new methods of thinking and the absolute freedom to push the boundaries of education and learning. We have our own unique, child-centred curriculum which ensures that our pupils remain firmly at the centre of all of their learning. It is built from the bottom upwards and is based on well-respected models of child development, meaning that activities are age and stage appropriate. Maths, English and Science planning follows the National Curriculum programmes of study, but we build on this, so that our offer is ambitious and knowledge rich, in order to fulfil our aim for our our pupils - to make exceeding progress in all subjects. Enrichment of learning occurs in our special environments - our own woodland and farm, as well as our strong links with the community.

This is the reason why our pupils run into school every day, full of excitement as they never know what the day may hold.....there may be the opportunity to help to prune the willow dome, visit a place of interest, the chance to walk Bean at lunchtime, to participate in a mindfulness session, visit our farm, compete against another school, enjoy a drama lesson or to use the fruit from our own trees to make a crumble to take home for tea.


You could be forgiven for thinking...

Well, this sounds great, but when do they do 'proper' work?

or...This is too good to be true!

We believe that there's nothing more off-putting than working through a series of worksheets, knowing that when you've finished one sheet, you do the next and so on. Worksheets aren't exactly banned at St George's, but we look for more exciting ways of engaging our pupils. Our lessons are balanced to ensure that our children receive 'all of the necessary basics,' but these aspects are often enhanced using real life activities so that pupils can understand the relevance of their learning.

Children learn best by doing, proving the old Chinese proverb correct:

I hear and I forget,

I see and I remember,

I do and I understand.
