Welcome to the Pre-Prep department! Our busy and exciting curricula promotes broad thinking, enquiry skills and a love of reading and writing. Our excellent pastoral support ensures all children are cared for and happy throughout their schooling.

The Pre-Prep at St Paul’s Cathedral School consists of Reception (EFYS) and Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2). After our recent expansion, the Pre-Prep is two-form entry.

Class sizes are no bigger than 20, and each class has a full time form teacher.  Each Key Stage One class has one teaching assistant and Reception has three teaching assistants between two classes, providing extra support for our youngest pupils.

Classes are based in form rooms, allocated side by side on two corridors.All classes benefit from views of the Cathedral and its gardens. 

Parental involvement in a child’s education is key and regular and open parent-school communication is encouraged. Formally, there are termly parents meetings or reports to provide regular progress updates. We welcome families for many events across the year including harvest festival, the Christmas Nativity, book-looks, IPC showcase, sports day, spring concerts, music recitals and many more.
