Welcome to Pre-Prep

I am delighted to welcome you to Farlington Pre-Prep. Our excellent, experienced practitioners challenge and encourage our pupils every day in a caring and nurturing environment. Academic excellence is balanced with wonderful pastoral care.  Understanding your child is our priority, ensuring that your child is given the opportunity to develop new interests and encouraged to try new things.  Our classrooms are fantastic, stimulating learning environments where lessons are tailored to your child’s needs. Our pupils will enjoy a significant degree of individual attention in small classes.

We are delighted  that our Prep School has been shortlisted for Prep School Of The Year 2018, by Independent School Parent Magazine.  This comes during a year when we were awarded the accolade of being one of the Top 100 UK Prep Schools by the Sunday Times Parent Power Survey.
