Welcome to the Pre-Prep

Welcome to the Pre-Prep

“Pownall is all about Mr Goulbourn waiting at the gate every morning to welcome you and your child. I remember Oscar’s first day, I was so impressed and relieved when he was welcomed by the Headmaster. He puts the children at ease in such a wonderful way.”

– Reception Parent

The Pre-Prep at Pownall Hall school is truly an exciting place to be, where children have so much fun that they don’t even realise that they are learning so much!

The children have full access to all the wonderful facilities and beautiful extensive grounds, so pupils as young as Reception can become real scientists in our Science lab and feel adventurous in our magical Forest School.

Children are taught specialist lessons such as Music and P.E. by specialist teachers that nurture children’s skills and talents by infusing their passion and love of their specialist subject. Our French teacher originates from Paris, so she teaches children how to speak with authentic French accents. The children are inspired to create artwork with fervour in our spectacular art room that is an inspiration because of the examples of artwork all around the room, as well as the historical significance of the building.

“Pupils of all abilities rise to the challenge of doing the best they can, as staff set different work for different abilities and encourage pupils to strive to tackle ambitious targets."
