PREPARATORY SCHOOL

Residential Weeks

Last week, our Prep school was brimming with excitement as pupils from Years 4 to 8 deviated from their usual timetables, and embarked on a week of exploration and adventure.  We are thrilled to share the articles and pictures from this memorable week, and hope you’ve been captivated by the tales from your children on their return.

Year 8 will embark on their annual residential trip at the end of the Summer Term, leaving them time to engage in an enriching Leadership Week experience last week.
