Welcome to Pre-Prep

Welcome to Pre-Prep at Pinewood School – the first step on a wonderful adventure!

The curiosity, passion and drive to learn is a life-long pursuit, giving us an important role in Pre-Prep: to inspire the enthusiasm that will remain with the children for the rest of their lives.

The holistic approach that permeates Pinewood as a whole is never more prevalent than here with our youngest pupils. The children are encouraged to take risks, follow their passions and expand their horizons – all with a core understanding of what it means to be a kind, considerate and gracious member of our school community and beyond.

We would love to welcome you to the Pinewood Pre-Prep and show you first-hand the warmth and buzz that radiates from our classrooms each and every day but, until then, let us share a glimpse of what makes it such a special place to be…

Parental Involvement

Parents and pupils’ families are an important part of the Pinewood community and there are many opportunities to see the children in action in special assemblies, plays and on sports day.


Toddler Mornings

Come and join our mini adventure!

We hold regular toddler mornings on Thursdays throughout the term.

This is a wonderful opportunity for families considering joining our Nursery or Reception to get to know the school better, making for a smoother transition when your child eventually starts at Pinewood. It is also a chance to meet other parents, either those already at the school or those also considering joining us soon.
