Westonbirt Prep is an independent Preparatory and Nursery School for boys and girls aged 3-11 years. Set in 210 acres of stunning parklands, shared with Westonbirt School, pupils benefit from the joint facilities which include a 9-hole golf course, a 25m indoor heated pool, a sports hall and multiple sports pitches. Teachers for specific subjects are also shared with the senior school for example in languages, drama and music.
Why Westonbirt Prep?
Westonbirt Prep was listed this year in The Times Top 100 Independent Prep schools in England, one of only 2 to make the list in the Gloucestershire area. Smaller class sizes and the excellent ratio of staff to pupils allow children to be well supported academically and in other areas and their individual abilities are valued. Boys and girls are praised for their efforts and good behaviour is encouraged. This small, family friendly school encourages all pupils to reach their potential developing a sense of independence, mutual consideration, manners and respect for others.
Prep school pupils go on to their first choice of Senior School including Westonbirt School, Grammar Schools and other top Independent schools. Academic success is strong. Emphasis is placed on sport, music, drama and art as well as wide ranging opportunities outside the classroom, including their own Forest School area. Many pupils go on to achieve scholarships to senior school and to pass the 11+ moving on to local grammar schools.
The Good Schools' Guide
The Good School Guide says parents describe the teaching as 'really good' and 'thorough'; several told us that they particularly liked the attention paid to public speaking. Everyone is encouraged to find their voice, both in lessons and by contributing to class assemblies.
Exceptional grounds and facilities
Westonbirt Prep successfully combines the educational quality and individual attention of an intimate, family school with the facilities and opportunities of a much larger school. The Prep school offers a £3m sports centre, indoor pool, state-of-the-art music technology suite and a golf course. Pupils are given every advantage in their educational and personal development.
