Where a love of learning begins

We want our pupils to enjoy their earliest years, and our spacious Melville Avenue site provides a secure place for our youngest pupils to run, play and spread their wings. Our caring and dedicated teachers are the bedrock of our community which is respectful, nurturing and compassionate. March 2021: from the middle of March we will be able to offer prospective parents a tour of the Head of the Prep School with Mrs Nike, either before or after school. Normal Covid-19 safety rules apply. Email:

Welcome from the Head

Key entry is 4+ (Reception) but we welcome applications for every year group, depending on availability.


Preparatory pupils enjoy a rich and diverse musical education. In addition to weekly class music lessons, delivered by a specialist music teacher, we encourage girls to pursue their musical interests in a variety of ways.
