Our Pre-Prep children develop into confident, articulate and kind individuals with an avid enthusiasm for learning.

In our Pre-Prep we combine the best elements of traditional teaching, with an emphasis on numeracy and literacy, with our skills based curriculum that gives every child the opportunity to reach their full potential. Small classes ensure plenty of individual attention. Led by dedicated teachers, each committed to giving children the best possible start to their school life, Pre Prep at Prebendal has a warm family atmosphere and is a secure and happy place in which to learn, grow and play.  

  • Outstanding teaching
  • A well balanced curriculum that focuses on the whole child
  • Specialist teachers for PE, Swimming, Music and French
  • A wide range of extra-curricular activities

Pre-Prep Breakfast & Supper Clubs

Supporting busy parents, the provision of clubs extending beyond the hours of the normal school day enables flexibility with drop off and collection times.

Out & About

Our surroundings offer many unique learning opportunities and children in Pre-Prep enjoy a wide range of trips and outings. As well as being an official Beach School our young pupils get to explore the historic sites in Chichester and the surrounding area. Our close links with Chichester Cathedral mean the Pre-Prep children get to know the Cathedral well, using it for workshops, our concert performances, assemblies and other events.

Plays, Sports Day, Prize Giving and concert performances add to the busy Pre-Prep calendar, with many opportunities for parents to see their work, watch their productions and admire their latest classroom projects.
