Bancroft’s Prep is a happy school where children who are bright and curious about the world can reach their full potential.

We have a rich and varied curriculum and we keep it that way throughout the four years the children are with us. The guaranteed transfer from the Prep to our Senior School means we don’t need to narrow everything down to focus on an entrance test at 11+ but we do ensure that the children are extremely well prepared for all the academic challenges they will go on to face.

Ours is a vibrant school which benefits from contemporary buildings and impressive shared facilities within the Bancroft’s campus. The Prep children enjoy the freedom that comes from having plenty of space in which to play within a beautifully landscaped and secure site. Whilst they are with us, we aim to give every child a breadth and depth of experience in the academic, cultural and sporting aspects of school life that will stay with them for the years to come.

There is a buzz about the Prep, not least because the children are clearly having fun whilst they learn. We have a very talented and committed staff who enjoy working in our diverse and harmonious school community.

I very much hope that you will consider Bancroft’s as a school for your child; it is a place that can set them up for life.
