Preparatory School

Open Week 3-7 November

The school is a member of the Independent Association of Prep Schools

Welcome to our school community. 

The first few years of a child's education should be a time of excitement and enrichment. At Plymouth College Preparatory School we aim to give all our pupils the best possible start to their school days and to prepare them in every way not just for the next step in their education but for the rest of their lives.

Our pupils benefit from the small class sizes and the excellent teaching they receive from our enthusiastic staff. They are encouraged to develop all their interests and talents both within the extensive curriculum and through involvement in a wide range of clubs and activities.  We believe in the importance of self-discipline and encourage pupils to develop their personalities and spirituality. Parents are an important part of our school community and help us create the warm, family atmosphere  which ensures that for our pupils these years will be amongst 'the happiest days of their lives'.

Together with the staff and pupils of the Prep School I look forward to showing you why we are so proud of our school. This website, and the accompanying literature, will give you all the facts and information you need to get a flavour of the school environment, but we warmly invite you to visit us and experience our happy community for yourselves. 

If you want to know more about our school and our policies please go to the College Intranet link and follow the link for the Preparatory School.
