The Croft Preparatory School

Dulce et Forte


Due to the current situation we have decided to cancel the Open Mornings on Saturday 21 March and Tuesday 24 March. Please call Admissions to make an appointment to view the school.


Key Stage One - Years 1 and 2


Children aged 6 - 7 years


The Pre-Prep enjoys its own building, surrounded by countryside, with its own exciting playground which encourages plenty of creative, outdoor play. There are up to three classes for each year band, and each class is allocated a Teaching Assistant.  Our assistants play a key role within each class, supporting the work of the Class Teacher, guiding and helping individuals and groups of children with their learning. The children follow an individual curriculum that enables them to make maximum progress towards their learning goals.


There are two large indoor play areas which are used for Assemblies, Music and many other special events. We also share facilities with the Preparatory School, including the Dining Hall, Theatre, Gymnasium, Sports Hall, Geology Museum, Playing Fields, Forest School, Music Department, Mundell Court Performance Space and Computing Suite, and all its exciting specialist spaces.


Our aim is to help each child to become a confident, independent individual, who relate well to other children and adults throughout the school. Our broad-based curriculum ensures that our children have the opportunity to develop and flourish. With a combination of stimulating activities and informative displays, an ideal learning environment is there for all the children.
