Welcome to Somerhill Pre-Prep at the Schools at Somerhill
Pre-Prep is the first stage of a child’s journey through Somerhill. Our children engage in exciting opportunities and experiences in a friendly, nurturing and caring environment.
Our children are at the heart of all that we do. The wonderful indoor and outdoor learning environment of Somerhill fosters their natural curiosity and imagination. We inspire young children to achieve their potential and move forward as happy, confident learners.
Our staff work hard to understand each child’s abilities and interests. We have small class sizes with highly qualified teachers, supported by experienced teaching assistants. We work in partnership with parents to instil a love of learning and a desire to meet new challenges with enthusiasm.
We set high standards and encourage all children to fulfil their academic, musical, artistic and physical potential.
Somerhill Pre-Prep, Yardley Court and Derwent Lodge share excellent facilities, including a 25m indoor swimming pool, state of the art music building, large outdoor play areas, extensive sport buildings/fields, computing, science and art rooms alongside classrooms in a beautiful Jacobean mansion.
Great importance is placed on our children’s social development. An emphasis on the positive understanding of rules for good behaviour builds a strong sense of personal self-esteem. This is part of a caring environment when the qualities of courtesy, self-respect and consideration for others are highly valued.
The happiness of children in our care is paramount. Our school has a warm, energetic, purposeful atmosphere. I would be very pleased to show you our Pre-Prep so that you can gain a first-hand impression of the quality of education here.
