Pre-Prep Introduction

A very warm welcome from Katie Gedye, the Head of Pre-Prep.

Moor Park Pre-Prep is an incredibly special place to be. I feel lucky to be able to work here, to educate my own family here and enormously proud to be leading a team of such dedicated professionals, whose sole aim is to inspire, and enthuse the young people in our community.

The staff at Moor Park pride themselves on knowing every single child: their interests, their talents, even what makes them nervous and things that they struggle with.  Whatever point your child is starting from, it is our goal to nurture their curiosity, develop their talents, stretch their boundaries and develop in them a confidence that ensures they feel ready to tackle anything. Activities are designed to engender in pupils a sense that learning is FUN!

More than anything, Moor Park Pre-Prep is a kind place. The small classes allow children to learn in a secure and supportive environment, whilst on the playground, children of different ages will often be found playing together. They not only notice if somebody is hurt or upset, but they care enough to do something about it.

From Kindergarten to Year Two we aim to build solid foundations in the basic skills. In numeracy, we teach a practical based curriculum designed to give children confidence in their understanding of number, shape, space and measure. It is our belief that reading holds the key to knowledge and learning and great emphasis is placed on the development of the required skills to move on from the Pre-prep as a confident and independent reader.  A broad and varied curriculum also develops skills in the humanities, sciences, sports and the arts.

Of course, a great pre-prep education is about more than building firm academic foundations. Our wide variety of extra-curricular activities allows every child to try something new and develop their skills. We embrace an active and outdoor education and make the most of our wonderful grounds and dedicated Woodland School site. You will often see a child’s character emerging most effectively when they are allowed the time, space and freedom to just explore and discover.

The result of all of this is a happy, enthusiastic and vibrant community: the perfect ingredients for growth and development. It is hard to describe on paper what it is that makes Moor Park so special. Touring parents often say they ‘just got a feeling’ that it was the right school. I do hope you will come and see for yourself what makes Moor Park the right school for your child.
