Opened in 2015 and sitting beside the main Preparatory school, Lockers Park Pre-Prep welcomes both boys and girls from Reception through to Year 2. The purpose-designed Pre-Prep offers a light, well-resourced space in which our excellent staff team delivers an innovative and carefully designed curriculum. This blends the more structured environment of the classroom with the freedom to learn around our school’s beautiful green setting. With expressly small class sizes – a hallmark of Lockers Park – we have the flexibility to encourage each child to develop at a speed and level that suits them, working closely with each individual.
At Lockers Park we foster a love of learning, not simply learning for exam success: we embrace individuality and character development just as much as academic awards.
This is a philosophy that runs through from the Pre-Prep to Year 8 and one that has stood us in good stead when it comes to preparing boys for the best British public and independent senior schools.
We maintain a strong focus on outdoor play and structured sport. Remaining true to our 19th century roots, we believe that exploring and engaging in outdoor activities is intrinsic to good schooling and that this leads to increased concentration and success during academic lessons.
A rich extra-curricular calendar is designed to encourage pupils to try many different activities, build strong peer groups and develop confidence.
At the heart of everything we do is a desire to instil confidence, self-esteem and independence in each and every child.
At Lockers Park Pre-Prep, the strong foundations of these core values are carried through when the boys join the main Lockers Park community at the Prep School. For Lockers Park girls, we work closely in partnership with families to place them in the right educational environment for the next step in their school journey.
