Pre-Prep

Sitting beside the Prep School in our leafy 23-acre ground, the Lockers Park Pre-Prep welcomes boys from Reception (aged 4 to 5) through to Year 2. Our Pre-Prep classrooms are bright, modern spaces full of life, imagination and laughter.

Small Class Sizes Allow Us to Know Your Son Well

Small class sizes of 16 or fewer – a hallmark of a Lockers Park education – ensures every child receives a high level of attention from the outset. This also means we know all our boys incredibly well. We know what makes them tick, where their strengths lie and where they need support.

Nurturing a Love of Learning

Our caring, experienced teachers know how to get the most out of boys, tapping into their natural curiosity with a creative curriculum that employs practical, interactive teaching techniques. This approach allows our boys to flourish both academically and socially.

A Full and Happy Childhood

A rich extra-curricular calendar complements pupils’ more formal learning to help our boys build strong peer groups and gain in confidence.

Here at Lockers Park we also recognise the importance of enjoying a full and happy childhood and our boys are given time to let off steam, build dens and simply have fun with friends.

We enable our boys to aim high and be the best they can be.
