Pre-Prep Head's Welcome

The Pre-Prep is a community within a community: dedicated and caring staff, happy and engaged children, and supportive and encouraging parents. The pastoral care for each child is paramount; our pupils develop confidence and independence while having the freedom to enjoy a magical childhood.

Witham is a nurturing, supportive school with wonderful staff and great communication.

Over my time at Witham, our fantastic team has strived to create everything we would wish for our own children. Visitors will see pupils that are actively engaged in and excited by their learning. We balance the need for a formal curriculum - maintaining the high standards expected, particularly in Maths and English - with cultivating interest and enthusiasm through topics and other curriculum areas which are varied and plentiful.

We enjoy the excellent facilities and environment of a thriving Prep School while also being small enough to nurture and develop each individual. The Pre-Prep has a true family feel to it. Class sizes are small, staffing levels are generous and specialist teachers in subjects such as Music, Computing, PE and French enhance the education, even at this young age. 

One could say I am biased, but in my humble opinion, the Pre-Prep is the best part of the School! Undoubtedly, the best way to appreciate what it is really like is to visit. Our pupils and staff are always happy to see visitors and I look forward to welcoming you.
