At Bancroft’s Prep we want to excite our pupils both in and outside of the classroom, to provide new experiences and allow them to discover their own particular talents. We seek to give the children as broad and rich an education as possible, to develop their character and to ensure they grow into happy, balanced individuals.

Alongside our outstanding curriculum, we offer a broad and well balanced sports programme, which aims to involve all the children, regardless of their individual ability.

Our activities programme is hugely diverse with a variety of clubs catering for all interests, such as Dance, Chess, Film, Crafts and Model Building. We also run a large number of Music, Speech and Drama groups.

Within the curriculum there are exciting trips supporting classroom learning for every year group to places ranging from London’s galleries and museums to outdoor learning environments in Epping Forest and beyond.

Our Betas (year 4) pupils enjoy an activity break crammed with exciting new challenges, not least of these being the opportunity to experience a holiday independent of their families!

We run a popular annual ski trip to Tonale, Italy, for both skiers and non-skiers.  Year 6 begins with our Outward Bound trip to the Lake District which focusses on building resilience and character as well as having lots of fun in a stunning setting.
