St Catherine's Prep marks the beginning of an excellent education for girls which, for most, leads on to St Catherine's Senior School. Ours is a Catholic school, built on Gospel values, and we welcome girls of all faiths and backgrounds. Outstanding foundations are laid from Nursery and Reception. Highly resourced and staffed, on purpose-built surroundings, the excellent grounds and facilities support a range of opportunities for the Foundation Stage. Warmth and enthusiasm abound as the girls experience the wonder and awe of learning and a real buzz fills the air.
Pupils move easily into Key Stage 1 where a broad curriculum challenges and supports the learning of all the pupils and the transition into Key Stage 2 is seamless. An excellent sense of community pervades the Prep School and pupils are articulate, confident and resilient. We aim to instil a lifelong love of learning and pupils are enthusiastic and curious and ready to be challenged. We celebrate success and the broad curriculum with specialist teaching in music, French, food and nutrition, swimming and physical education, is supported by a range of trips, visits and extra-curricular activities ranging from creative writing to street dance.
The school takes great pride in its pastoral care. All pupils have their own form teacher and our open door of communication enables any issue to be dealt with sensitively. We have high expectations of the girls and the pastoral support we provide gives the highest level of care throughout every day.
The range of on-site facilities, including our own swimming pool, netball courts and playing field ensures pupils make the most of every minute of the day at St Catherine's Prep. Many take advantage of our wrap around care, beginning with breakfast club and finishing with after school supervision to complete the school day.
