Welcome to Bancroft's Prep School – a school which parents choose for a variety of reasons: the balance of the curriculum, the wide range of excellent facilities, the friendly and open nature of the boys and girls, the secure and caring environment, the importance of cultural and moral values and the sense of enjoyment – the 'buzz' of the school – which is always in evidence.

Bancroft’s Prep School is a preparatory school for bright boys and girls aged 7-11 who are naturally curious about the world and ready to take advantage of the many opportunities our school offers.

The latest technology, a stimulating curriculum and contemporary buildings all provide an ideal learning environment.

This website offers a small insight into what we try to achieve. We hope you will come to see the school for yourselves and experience the atmosphere and involvement of the children and staff.
