Students with headteacher

Forward Planning! 

5th February 2016

Pre-Prep Dressing Up Day is not until Wednesday 9th March but we thought it would be fun to have a theme this year. As usual, we would like the children to come dressed up as a character from a book, but this year we have chosen the books! This way should ensure the children really do get involved with characters from a particular book (in the past, they have often not been sure who they are supposed to be!), and hopefully together you can think of a simple costume for your child to wear.

So … these are the books on which each year group will be basing their activities, and we look forward to seeing the children dressed up as a character from ‘their’ book…

Nursery: Day Monkey, Night Monkey

Reception: The Faraway Tree

Year 1: Room on a Broom

Year 2: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Please do ask your child’s teacher if you are unsure!

Virtual Open Day

Another Virtual Open Day!


Our next Virtual Open Day will take place on Saturday 3 October where we will share a link to an exclusive Open Morning page. The page will contain more information about our school and videos showing ‘A day in the Nursery/Pre-Prep/Prep School’.

Should you wish to speak to the Headmaster & Head of Pre-Prep in person, you are also invited for a 1:1 (socially distanced) chat at your convenience.

To book an appointment, or to register your place for the Virtual Open Day, please email our Registrar, Kathryn Billingham-West on
