Welcome to Pre-Prep

The Pre-Prep School comprises of Foundation, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. The department is a vibrant learning environment utilising wonderful outdoor facilities alongside extended and refurbished Foundation and Reception classrooms.

Children within the Department are aged between three and seven years and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 curriculums. The department has a simple philosophy: that the first years of a child’s education are the most important, and that each child deserves to gain the most from this time.

Located on the same site as the Prep School, Pre-Prep makes use of all our excellent co-located facilities to provide the best possible foundations for a successful school life. The main point of entry for most children is Foundation (3+), however we focus at every stage on preparing your child for their next steps through the Prep School and beyond.

All of our highly qualified staff focus on providing exceptional pastoral care to your child – our nurturing and supportive environment is a hallmark of Hallfield.

Our focus on helping your child excel in all areas is reflected in our broad cross-curricular activities. From music to ballet and Spanish to football, your child will be given a range of opportunities beyond the classroom. Pre-Prep is in all ways the ideal start in school life for your child.
