Girls aged 4 – 7 begin their education at Pipers in the secure and welcoming surroundings of Woodlands, a self-contained area tucked away in a quiet part of our campus.
Here girls learn in a happy and stimulating environment. As well as promoting academic achievement, there is great emphasis on the importance of nurturing personal and social development.
Our Pre-Prep girls enjoy the best of both worlds. As well as feeling very much at home in their own bright and welcoming classrooms, they also benefit from their involvement in the wider life of the community. Girls are taught by specialists teachers in subjects including French, Music and Dance and they enjoy using the main school's excellent facilities such as the swimming pool, the sports hall, the ICT suite and the drama and dance studios. They also welcome the contact with older girls as they move around the school.
The Pre-Prep girls also benefit from following the Forest School curriculum. You can find out more about this in the Forest School section.
Each year a limited number of Jessie Cross Foundation Awards will be awarded to girls joining our Reception class. The Foundation Awards are means-tested and can have a value of up to 100% of fees. The Award is given for the duration of Pre-Prep education (Reception to Year 2). Applications for September 2018 Reception entry need to be submitted by Friday 4 May 2018 - please click here for more information or contact our Registrar.
