Life in the Prep School

Continuing to develop the confidence, ambition and love of learning of our children remains a key focus throughout the Prep School.  Success is celebrated, independence is encouraged and collaboration is promoted. 

The Prep School is divided up into three ‘schools’, all of which have their own individual base, which allows the children the space to grow into their new surroundings.  Lower School is home to Years 3 and 4, Middle School to Years 5 and 6 and Upper School to Years 7 and 8. 

The school day is structured in a different manner to Pre-Prep, and naturally the expectations on the children increase as they move through the school; that said, they are very much supported and guided through this process.

A School Day

The School day runs without variation throughout the year.  That said, there are timetable differences depending on the day of the week, to allow for a varied afternoon programme.


Pinewood School


Pinewood provides an academically challenging environment, which is vibrant, stimulating and, most importantly, personalised to suit individual pupil potential.  Pupils are encouraged to take ownership of their work, fostering independence and instilling a lifelong love of learning.

Pastoral Care

A family atmosphere is very much at the heart of Pinewood and can be seen across all areas and felt by all ages within the school.  A support structure has been created to underpin this and to reflect the importance that Pinewood puts on pastoral care.
