Prep - School Life

Pre-Prep School Life

The Prep Department is home to children from Reception to Prep VI. It is a caring, friendly and nurturing environment where children are encouraged to make the most of the joys of living and learning. We continually support and encourage children to be happy and confident, eager to explore, with independent and inquiring minds.

At St. Francis’ we understand and celebrate the unique qualities of every child and want to ensure their school days are an enjoyable and positive experience. Our staff are highly trained, passionate and experienced, providing the highest standards of care and education in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. We offer a wealth of rich and inspiring extra-curricular experiences, as well as a learning environment and inspiring teaching methods that encourage each child’s curiosity and interests. With full access to the school’s facilities including the swimming pool, theatre and outdoor learning area, every day is a brand new opportunity to play, learn and explore.

The school day begins with registration at 8.45am, but supervision is provided for pupils arriving at any time from 7.45am. The school day ends at 3.30pm (3.15pm for Reception, Prep I and Prep II). We offer appropriate supervision for all children up to 6.00pm – see Wrap-around Care.
