We are delighted to be accepting admissions for our new pre-prep school for September 2019 onwards, so that we can make our outstanding education available to children at the start of their formal education at 4 years old.
Hannah Brown, the new head of the pre-prep, joins Wellesley from Lorenden Prep School in Faversham, where she has been Deputy Head. Hannah has excellent knowledge and experience of teaching and leadership in the Early Years and of Key Stage 1 and 2.
Pupils from Reception upwards will become part of the Wellesley family, benefitting from excellent teaching, a wide range of sport and extra-curricular activities, supported by our exceptional pastoral care.
At the heart of the pre-prep will be our values of kindness, respect, courage, teamwork and enjoyment, which help to foster self-confidence within children, whilst encouraging a love of learning, a strong sense of unity and an understanding of others. These are all vital skills that help to prepare our pupils for, not just their time in education, but also in life.
The school’s grounds and proximity to the beach will enable beach school and outdoor learning to be integral to the curriculum and life of the school. In addition, Reception and Year 1 classes will have direct access to outdoor learning spaces from their classrooms and they can investigate, reflect and experiment.
