With small class sizes, lots of time to play and relish childhood, as well as the fun of participating in plays, creative assemblies, themed curriculum days, sport, and activities, pupils are prepared gradually for the move to the Prep School at the end of Year 2.

The Pre-Prep and Nursery classrooms enjoy having their own interactive whiteboards, and there is a dedicated Pre-Prep library.

A range of assemblies are held each day throughout the week.  These include a weekly assembly led by the Headmaster and the Head of Pre-Prep, and a fortnightly celebration assembly.  At the start of every term, pupils join the Prep School for a special Headmaster’s Assembly, where staff and pupils from the whole school sing the school hymn and celebrate being part of Pinewood.
