The Prep School is a vibrant and enriching environment and we want every pupil to be able to access what they need to thrive and flourish, or as we say ‘to be their best selves’. We strive to support the curiosity of learning and to make pupils’ first steps into education an inspiring and purposeful experience, equipping them for their future, whatever they choose to do.
We are blessed with a dedicated and enthusiastic body of teachers and support staff who care very much about making our pupils’ time here an enjoyable, valuable and memorable experience. All staff support our pupils by placing importance upon treating every pupil as an individual; finding what makes them tick and using those cues to encourage and motivate them.
As pupils work their way through the Prep School, the opportunities to develop leadership skills increase. As well as in-class roles such as Form Captain, Eco Warrior and Library Monitor, there are whole-school responsibilities like that of Head Boy, Head Girl, Peer Mentors, Newspaper Editors and the newly created Poet Laureate position.
Holme Grange is a community and we care about providing a wealth of occasions for children and their parents and grandparents to be involved in. Part of school life are our sports fixtures, musical performance evenings, school plays and PTA events. These are special moments in our children’s lives and help to build character. Part of our close relationship with our parents stems from the communication links that we work hard to establish.
Holme Grange is a great learning environment that promotes independence and good social skills.
