Background: The Preparatory Department is a long- established and integral part of Friends School. It is co-educational and interdenominational. The age of the pupils ranges from 4-11 years. Pupils from 2 years 9 months may join the Pre Prep Department.
At Friends Prep we wish our pupils to be educated in a secure, happy and caring environment based on the principles of the Religious Society of friends. Our aim is to provide the opportunities for each child to develop his or her inherent potential academically, socially and emotionally. The education of a child involves a partnership between home and school. We know, therefore that parents will be sharing in this educational process with us, as we endeavour to make each child s time in Friends School Preparatory Department a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
Forest School setting: Friends Prep were successful in securing a Forest School Award funded by the Public Health Agency in 2017/18. We used our extensive school grounds as our Forest School site.
