Our transformation programme ‘Creating Spaces for Growing Minds’ was completed recently, making our facilities some of the best of any prep school in the country.

We have spacious classroom breakout areas with retractable doors, a high-tech ‘Explore Floor’, a multi-media recording studio, and an Eco-Greenhouse. Our specialist drama, art, science and IT suites have also been refurbished and two new lifts mean the school is also now fully accessible throughout.

These new spaces give girls wonderful opportunities for independent exploration, self-directed learning and collaborative work complementing our outstanding teaching in classroom and specialist rooms. In recognition of the pioneering design, the school was awarded the prestigious ‘Innovation in Teaching and Learning Award in 2019 and commended for pupil experience.

The girls are very excited by the school’s transformation which was completed in Summer 2016. The spaces are incredibly freeing for teachers and pupils and provide wonderful opportunities for imaginative exploration and independent and collaborative ways to learn.

Here’s a brief animation we’ve created on transforming classrooms in creative spaces for learning.

Outdoor exploration

Our spacious playground is the perfect place for outdoor learning.

Natural wildlife areas

We have garden and wildlife zones in the playground.

Tactile surfaces

We have created a spacious area with tactile and sensory surfaces to allow children to explore and discover through their senses

Playground amphitheatre-style seating

Adding to our spacious playground is the stepped area we have built – amphitheatre style which the girls love.
