King Henry VIII Preparatory School is a co-educational school serving the needs of children aged from 3 to 11. We work closely with parents ensuring the many and varied gifts of all children are given the opportunity to shine. The positive relationships between talented staff and pupils, alongside the obvious benefits of small class sizes and excellent facilities, help to ensure that each child is known as an individual and can flourish academically, socially and emotionally.
The school motto, Confide Recte Agens - Have the confidence to do what is right, is the driver for the moral compass we aim to develop in our pupils. We promise that the best interests of the child will always be at the heart of our decision making and as such our motto is equally applicable to our staff.
Rooted in a long standing history of excellence, we are able to hold fast to the many positive traditions of the British preparatory education system whilst selecting the most effective contemporary, engaging and innovative teaching methods to ensure our children are fully equipped for the next stage of their educational journey and beyond. The benefits of this approach can be seen throughout the school in the happy faces, friendly voices and enquiring minds of our pupils.
The school is based on 2 campuses Swallows and Hales. Swallows caters for children in Nursery (from the age of 3) up to the end of Year 2. Hales campus was purpose built in 1996. Children in Years 3 to 6 learn happily each day in a mix of general classrooms and specialist facilities.
On his return from the First World War Rev Kenelm Swallow M.C. wanted the school to be 'a place to inspire pupils, a place they would love when they were there and after they had left, and a place they would look upon as their second home.' In this he succeeded.
