The Croft Preparatory School

Dulce et Forte


Thornton Scholarship Examination - Monday 3 February 2020. Registration now open for current Year 2 pupils


In Prep, work in the Art Studio builds on the foundations from the Pre-Prep Department.


As techniques are mastered, confidence in visual communication, with its own language of colour, texture, form, proportion, line, light and shade, is developed.


The Art Studio, a dedicated space, staffed by Specialist Teachers, encourages every child to their own success. Our lovely grounds are used as the inspiration for ‘en plein air’ sketching, and the children’s work is displayed within the School and at other school Art exhibitions.


Ideas from visiting Art Specialists, Art Assemblies, Art Clubs and Art Outings help to broaden the Art curriculum. We hope Art at The Croft will give the children a love of the subject for the rest of their lives.


Children frequently gain Art Scholarships to Secondary Schools.
