Welcome to the Pre-Prep

The Pre-Prep at Spring Grove includes our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes. The classes are housed in classrooms in the beautiful 17th-century house that forms the core of the school, and in our brand-new Pre-Prep building opened in 2023. The Pre-Prep is an exciting time in your child’s educational journey, with the emphasis firmly on ensuring the happiness and wellbeing of every pupil as they continue to develop and grow.

With an excellent staff to child ratio, you can be assured that your child will be supported and challenged to learn at the right pace for them throughout their time in the Pre-Prep.

The great desire for pupils to give of their best, to succeed and maximise their ability was noted throughout the school. This is very much underpinned by the school values where curiosity and confidence are actively promoted.
