Settling In

Pre-Prep (Nursery)

At the Village Prep we aim to give all our girls the very best start, beginning with a taster session and a chat with the Headmaster before your daughter joins. In the Summer Term both you and your daughter will be invited to a Tea Party to meet teachers, new friends and parents.

We offer you the flexibility to build attendance throughout the year, with a minimum of three morning sessions (9-1pm) towards full-time attendance in the Summer Term, prior to your daughter’s 5th birthday.

Settling in transition will always respond to individual needs and requirements, working closely together to ensure your family’s settling in procedure is a smooth and joyful experience.

Prep (Reception

As a member of The Early Years, there is a natural transition into the first year of proper school whilst retaining the benefits of the Early Years environment.

 As we progress through the year, we encourage and extend the independent learning and involvement within the main school through assemblies, charity days and whole school events. 

By the end of their time in Early Years, all the girls are confident, happy and well-prepared to move up into Key Stage 1.
