Our Aim

‘…results give it undeniable cachet as a prep whose top leavers continue to have the entrée to some of south west London’s most sought after senior schools, this school is about so much more than getting hard results. We found the boys engaged with everything the school has to offer, and extremely proud of it.’

  • He will be creative and conscientious

 SKILFUL

  • He will achieve his best by seeking to understand, be engaged and be inspired
  • He will find his particular strengths and skills
  • He will learn to master many areas and excel in some

KIND

  • He will find fulfilment in what he does and be good to himself
  • He will develop positive and successful relationships with others
  • He will care for his community and his world

How will we achieve our aims?

We will do this by developing an excellent all-round learning environment, focused on these five objectives:

  1. To help each boy to develop strong cognitive skills (thinking and intellectual) and a good attitude towards learning
  2. To help each boy to develop excellent personal skills, including self-awareness, self-motivation and self-regulation; so that he can be confident, resilient and positive in all situations
  3. To help each boy to develop excellent interpersonal/social skills so that he can learn to collaborate, be empathetic, assertive and respectful and to communicate successfully
  4. To help each boy to contribute positively to our society and environment so that he can grow up into a successful and considerate citizen
  5. To help him to achieve entry to a senior school which is suited to his abilities, interests, personality and needs
