There are a multitude of reasons to choose Pre-Prep at Longacre. You only have to see our youngest children holding the hands of the Form VI prefects, watch them run in the whole school relay on Sports Day or skip into school in their school uniform to understand why.

Our Pre-Prep pupils are fortunate to be part of the whole school community, as are their parents. They wear the same uniform, are a member of one of the four school houses and have access to the very best quality teaching staff for physical development and creative learning. They make use of our top class facilities and run around our 9½ acres of woodland.

Our children have no concerns over the transition into school life and full-time education. They are familiar with the daily routines and the teaching staff across the school and are already accomplished socially through their daily interactions.

Aim of the Pre-Prep

Pre-Prep is just the start of the Longacre journey, where children are given the confidence and motivation to explore the world around them. Our aim is to make the Pre-Prep an exciting, stimulating and enjoyable experience which will help establish the skills necessary for successful learning, but will also inspire within the children the joy of discovery.

The Pre-Prep children are members of our school community and benefit enormously from being part of the house system, playing with the older children and appreciating the extensive opportunities a wider community offers.

We present the children with an appropriate curriculum which is designed to challenge and inspire but to also allow the children to be successful. Our Pre-Prep academic profile scores far outweigh both the Surrey and national scores every year. We provide the children with a staff of highly qualified and experienced professionals who support the children in every aspect of their development; in their academic achievement as well as their happiness, well-being and progress.
