Reception to Year 2
Classes for children from Reception through to Year 2 are housed in ‘Highleigh’, our fantastic purpose-built building. Many of our young ‘Pelicans’ take the next step of their Prebendal journey when they join Pre Pre-Prep, making them natural greeters for those coming into our school for the first time.
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. Here is a little glimpse into the timings of their school day:
|8:15am||Classrooms are open|
|11:45am||Lunch for Reception|
|12noon||Lunch for Years 1 & 2|

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.
